Unveiled But Undeterred

It was bound to slip away,
revealing more than you would have them know
The farce so painstakingly layered to present a you even you wouldn’t recognise,
A you, that you never intended to show.

There is too much covered under that garb of surety,
Too strong your faith in it.
Yes, the strong are allowed to waver,
But you will have to wait.

Because this choice you made is their reality,
Your distance from truth, their path.
You’ve led them on too far along,
A few miles more you can walk.

Hold on tight to these fluttering seams,
And bury its feeble threats to tell.
It’s yours to keep what you cannot share,
And theirs to buy every lie you sell.
