Ruby

My precious Ruby

Is your blood

As red as your name

Or is it as colorful as your fantasies?

.

Oh, my precious Ruby

Your mind has weaved wonders

Beyond man's comprehension

A fantasy so beautiful, yet so horrible

.

A land of sorrow and of joy

A world of life and death

My precious Ruby has always

Fancied tragedy

.

My precious Ruby

How deceitful you are

Your mask so intricately made

Your mask you wear so well

.

My precious Ruby

You let them see

What you want them to

With no flaws on your part

.

Your silent screams

Have gone unheard

And your desperate pleas

Went unnoticed

.

But, that is what

You want is it not?

To fade into the shadows

To put on a show worthy of Broadway

.

Though I tell you this

My dear precious Ruby

Every mas is bound to break

And yours is starting to crack

.

So put on a grand encore

For all to see

What have you called it?

"The big reveal?"

.

Let them beg for more

As you shout your final goodbyes

Curtain call darling!

Smile and wave!

.

Take your bow

Up on your grand stage

And as the curtains are finally close

In this chapter of your life forever

.

Remove your mask

Let them gasp and awe

As the walls of deceit fall

And show them who you truly are
