Lifetime of Darkness


My life is a lie.

Every day is a challenge

As I put on a show for those closest to me.

I was taught that these feelings inside me are wrong.

But as long as I could remember I have had them.

Will I ever be able to experience love?

Will I ever be truly happy?

Or will I be forced to this lifetime of lies?

I am scared.

Scared of how my loved ones would perceive me.

Scared of losing love.
