Tainted Image

You cannot see

Your own beauty glowing through

The warped reflection

And flawed perceptions…

You cannot hear

The truth of your voice

Through the muffled shouts

And critical words

That deafen you to your music.

You cannot smell the stench

Of deception

That makes your eyes tear

While you are told

That all blame is yours to bear.

You cannot speak

Through the throat tight

With self-denial

Certain that nothing you say

Could convey the purity

Of your heart’s intentions~

The same heart

You can no longer feel

Beneath the tight grip

Of self control

That strangles you.

I only ask of you to believe

In one truth…

Your magnificence.

Shelly ❤
