Her Wretched Delusion

Believing Her Lie

A lot of them had said,

"You're so amazing"

But none of them knew

How much it hurt her.

They believed her identity

The beautiful mirage

Of perfection

She'd created.

Only she knew

Her deep secret

She smiled to herself

Knowing it'd be okay.

It always was

She convinced herself

Knowing sometimes

Acceptance was easier.

Acceptance of a lie,

Acceptance of a mask,

She placed on,

In order to protect:


The End
