Behind This Lie

I am beautiful, inside these green eyes

I dream in color, a feeling of no demise

An intrusive smile, an endearing glow

To frolic in the ebriety, a chance to say hello

Then a glance in the looking glass, a reflection of silence

Picking apart the pieces, within a frown of defiance

Happiness was content, until time taken to see

Living behind the shadows, finding it is still me

Looking into your own eyes, gives a chance for change

For a moment time stands still, a judgment to disarrange

A trying glimpse at a past, when the bad seems to be more

With all the possible futures, and the paths you could not ignore

A passive acceptance of fate, left with thoughts in an array

The juggernaut of my time felt, as I turn and walk away
