When You’ve Always Lived Your Life In Disguise

Fire inside
That isn’t learned
Intensity confirms this heat was earned

Magnetic to touch 
Drawing you in from outside 
Forced to face an inability to hide 

Dangerous ground
She is afraid to be found

Broken pieces
A life of much treason

Heat is no surprise 
Accompanied by longing its demise 

Of the suffering and fear
Hurting those held so dear

Seduced by a flame 
Words cannot explain

In the eyes of her beholder
Her tired spirit awakens from smolder

Cynical heart grown weary 
Love is nothing but a theory

Heart kept blinded 
Resisting leaving confinement 

Holding the secrets 
To repay her loves debt

True beauty derives 
A forgotten little girl removes her disguise Thought Catalog Logo Mark
