Living in a Illusion

Written by: Monique Steenkamp

During day she wears her mask
She plays along in the illusion
Smiling, she ignores the pain
She breathes, but knows she is dead

She wishes she could be invisible
Then she would at least have a reason for going
What else can she do but act out her scene?

But she has a dark secret
When night falls and all are sleeping
She breaks down and falls apart
For deep down she knows she is lost

Screaming for someone to sustain her
But she knows she is trapped in a heartless world
Unable to fix what is broken
She cries herself to sleep, it’s her lullaby

With each day that passes
She falls deeper into the lies
But the truth is…
Slowly, she is slipping away
