"I'm well acquainted with villains that live in my head."

I’m a reclusive person.
I don’t like
Letting people know
Who I am.
So I draw a persona
Out of faked charisma,
And confidence.
And I hide.




They like me.
I can’t believe
They bought my act.
I guess
I’ll up
The ante.
And I’ll hide.




My mom
Thinks I’ve become
More sociable.
I fooled the person
Who knows me best.
Should I be truthful?
She finally has hope
For me.
So I stay quiet.
And I hide.




I feel happy today.
I’m not forcing
My persona
Like I normally
Am I
Still shy?
Or have I really




I can’t tell anymore.
Maybe it’s time
To drop the
To break
The chrysalis.
And emerge
As a new person.
And to stop hiding.
