I Pretend

I am full of myself today.
So eager to please my true love.
Others do not know me like I do.

I pretend to keep them close, 
Yet I actually keep them far, far apart.
I will never show them my total me.

All full of sass, I hide it.
It is way out beyond my reef.
I know the power of myself full tilt.

So I hide it away, but pretend I am open.
He looks at me and smiles, having no idea
What my sadistic mind is capable of thinking.

Panagiota, thank you for stopping by. I hide so much it is crazy. But when the truth comes out....watch out! And stand back.
