Seething sounds of laughter,
escape her soft, gentle lips –
Teasing trickery thereafter,
as her beauty abruptly slips.
Vainly seeking redemption,
now lost within a cruel night –
insecurely pursuing an answer,
deeply buried within delight.
Exposing uncertain secrets,
once submerged within a tide –
projecting strength and purity,
her weakness she tries to hide.
Vanity consumes her visions,
devouring her foolish dreams –
succumbing to the realization,
life is not all what it seems.
What a silly, naïve child she is,
believing there’s good in all you see….
What an embarrassment to her vanity,
that silly, naïve child inside of me.
