Exposure

She stands with defiance in her eyes
No longer does she believe the lies
Told by those she once held dear
Their true selves are now so clear
Deceit and betrayal are all they know
Their ugliness within starting to show
No longer can they hide behind their lies
She tears away each shred of their disguise
Having exposed them she walks away
Head held high, she’s no longer their prey


Vulnerable

She watches the sun as it slowly sinks
In the fading light she quietly thinks
Of how she got here and what to do
How to escape she hasn’t a clue
But why does she run from something so real
When for the first time she can truly feel
Why does it scare her to let herself go
She’s so afraid to let her true self show
So vulnerable when others can see
All that it is that she can truly be
