Hood for the trees

I wear a very convincing mask.
And I ask that you believe this facade. That,
on all fronts,
I’ve acted out a persuasive scene.
In between rehearsed lines,
you’ll probably find someone shaking within the wings…
This brings me to you thinking I’ve not delivered the true,
the real me…
On the contrary;
I would rather you witness the happy, the vibrant,
The free…
It’s just…
easier.
Dramatic,
erratic & painfully sad is not what I want represented.
Defend then,
my quiet misery.
Do I offend you when my shit becomes too hard?!

Yes!
So, therefore I skip on,
aimlessly.
