Inauthentic

My perception is vague, my reflection unclear. My eyes are two distorting mirrors that devise a veneer fashioned with my fears. I’m seized inside an illusory disguise that’s only feeding me spoonfuls of lies. Oh, how I hunger to be recognized... Actuality stays hidden behind the scenes. What my eyes perceive is make believe. I’m incapable of comprehending the genuine me.

Hi Anne, i noticed I read all your poems... and the only reason I'm telling you this it's cause. I want to read something new... not that this is boring... but, come on I don't want to flood your poems with my comments. LOL...I have a habit of doing that... to others. Do us all a favor. post 20 poems before the month is over... LOL hugs and goodnight... Linda
