    Smoke And Mirrors

    I put on my mask
    Artfully dodging the extremely personal questions I'm asked
    Everyone just keeps on trying but they can't seem to get past
    My six inches of glass

    They know that I'm strong
    Always believing I can't bleed, I can't let them see that they're wrong
    So I press on and keep fighting until all of their dangers are gone
    Then I bleed on my own

    But you see it all
    Into the darkness when night falls
    When I have no voice you hear my calls
    When I'm silently screaming in pain

    You're not fooled by
    My smoke and mirrors you see right
    Into my soul in through my eyes
    Past all the hurt and the game
    You bring so many things to my life
    Too many to name
    You mean more than the words of this poem could explain

    And one day since you've given your all
    I'll give you my last name

    Ditto brittlitbit! Fave line "When I'm silently screaming in pain". The juxtaposition between just two words can say so much!

      Thank you, LilyBlue! That unintentionally rhymed. I was thinking about who saves the superhero after they have saved the world and came up with this.
