Behind a veil,
Of black and white,
Lace that defines,
Who I am,
All my feelings,
Trapped behind,
A veil of insecurity,
And within its beauty lays,
My heart and all my ways,
Preserved perfectly,
Just behind a haze,
Behind a smile,
Red and white,
Shaped perfectly,
Just right right for them,
Not me,
And in my mouth,
Lay all those things,
I meant to say,
But are kept quiet secretly,
Hidden is my heart,
Forbidden are my ways,
Lost is my understanding,
Of all my youthful days.

Wow.  I can relate to this in so many ways.  I've been waiting to see, or write, something like this.  Haha.  Great work. =]
