We live double lives
and we know it.

We mirror ourselves
and play games with our twins.

And each time we know
it’s not the last.

We hide behind facades
thick with gloss,

and dirty dance
with secret demons

because we know we can,
because it’s safer to be fake.

And we pretend
it’s all so very real

when we know it’s nothing but pretty pictures
painted to look like happiness.


I know, I skipped a day, but here is one for day fifteen. Enjoy!

~ Patience
