No Hiding

No Hiding

Stand up step forward put your arms
around me, I’ll reach for the light.
This is me in the dark the me that hides
behind shadows the me safely under the covers
this is the dark me now let there be light.
Here lie my flaws amidst what I flaunt
those are my secrets and all this is truth
This is my life and this is how I live this is
the old woman that keeps disguising my youth.
Hiding deep underneath her skin I just keep
longing for real love, all my searches are spent in
vain no matter how much I push and shove.
Stand up step forward put your arms around me
focus on the mirror, I’ll reach for the light.
This is me the me in the dark and this
is why I hide now let there be light.
