The True Me (2007)

Trembling hands and quivering knees,
Reveal to you what you failed to see,
My weaknesses I had hid so well,
But my barriers crumbled and finally fell,
Breathe deep this one cigarette,
The intoxicating scent of my depression,
Dispose of the illusions that you once harbored,
Watch as the truth unfolds before you,
I’m not the woman you thought me to be,
But a pale imitation of whom I once was,
Discard what you thought you knew about me,
See my true self; collapsed at your feet,
Head lowered, eyes closed, tears falling freely,
I am not the strong, courageous girl that I led you to believe,
Just a pathetic, broken soul that will never again be free.
