Look at me- what do you see?
Shades of reality
in my eyes
Flashes of sanity, lingering insanity
All in the guise
Of a wide eyed smile
An innocent child
All purity, tears and laughter
-and there lies the deception
They’re all mistaken
They don’t see the shades- even
When they weaken
as the night goes
When they finally see
In the dark

I am Belladonna, not Rose
