Angels and Demons
Lovely oblivion how I cherished you! I was the beautiful pretender, captivating impostor, fooling all, even myself after awhile. but angels and demons never stay buried for long, they just inhabit, until something, or someone comes along and tears you open, ripping away layers of phoniness, exposing the fallacious actor, who'd learned to play her part so well. You came along, when demons were raging and angels only wept. I thought I could fool you too like all the rest, but you could see the pain in me and you could see the love. you stripped me bare, dispossessed me of all my clinging, splitting me wide open, raw. I'd never seen 'real' before, you and now you have me begging, pleading show me more, 'cause fighting all the demons will take time.
