Make-believe

Appearances and disguises,
Filling my world with wonder.
Beautiful stories, comforting views,
A hopeful future of endless hues.

Hiding in the shadows,
Truths tucked deep.
Changing and evolving,
To suit each sheep.

On comes the light,
Flicking of the switch.
Glaring too bright –
Blindness!

Blinking eyelids, rapidly!
Shaking my head,
I want the fuzziness dead.
Slowly… Patiently… Eyes adjust.

Naked before me – truth unexpected!
Frills and florals faded away.
Bare before me –
Lie words made of clay.
