The Facade/Iron Wall

Confident, loud
Bright, proud.
Until the lights go out.
Small, sad
Hurting, mad.
She curls into herself.

Fun seeking,
Loving life.
She struts throughout the land.
Wanting love,
Scared of it.
She cries when none are there.

Loved by all
Loving all
She manages to fool herself and all.
But get too close
She lashes out
To protect her Iron Wall.

Relate.

"But get too close
She lashes out
To protect her Iron Wall."

I know all too well how this is,
and the beginning!
Love it!

Behind closed doors no one truly knows the color of an individual.
