Shadows

Everyone sees what they want to see
A shadow of the person who is the true me
Everyone sees an illusion
An illusion that's partly created by me
If someone were to look deep enough
They may just uncover
Something they don't want to see
Something they don't want to know
Something they don't want to understand.
The truth. An unknown element in their worlds.
The truth.
People tell such horrid lies.
They say they see.
They say they know.
They say they understand.
They lie. That's all they do. They lie.
I live in a shadow of darkness,
My heart weighed down and heavy
My emotions obscured by an ominous cloud
Everyone sees what they want to see
Or they see and they don't understand
They read the black and white,
But can't read between the lines.
Everyone sees what they want to see.
A shadow of the complex web that is me.
