Who Are You Really?

Sometimes I glimpsed
into the heart of the man
you’ve made yourself to be
and found hiding beneath
the darkness
traces of who you really are
Sad images, bound by circumstances
living a lie
extravagant and beautiful
the outside appeared
yet on the inside
a torn heart held
broken promises
dormant and alone
hiding in the shadows
of a deranged soul
