Nowhere to hide

She pretends to be brave

Confident, suave

Well-versed with

The ways of the world.

She’s impressive and


A social butterfly

She doesn’t seek attention

But attracts it nevertheless

She’s outgoing and funny

But not in a haha way

She’s witty and smart



And everyone thinks

She’s well-adjusted.

Only she knows

The fallacy she lives

The masks she wears

The nightmares

That haunt her

The insecurities

The doubts

The inferiority complex.

She can never let her

Guard down

Never peel the layers off

Never be truly her self

Except at night

As she lies in bed

Engulfed by darkness

When there is no one

To hide from

And nowhere to hide.
