Dragons

 
You see scars,

Lines on wrists,

And you think you know.

You see pills,

Lined up on a bathroom cabinet,

And you think you know.

You see a suit and a smile,

Freshly pressed and sparkling white,

And you think you know.

You see a new dress and a pair of high heels,

Polished perfection with bright red lips,

And you think you know.

The truth is,

Our stories are living dragons,

Setting fire to their keepers.

The truth is…

More obvious than you think.
