A Bit of Hypocrisy
By Allie Marie
I’m tired of being the question.
I want to be the answer.
I want to be seen,
but I have a tendency to run away.
You don’t know what you’re after.
I’m a hypocrisy verging on disaster.
You think there must be more.
I don’t think you really want the truth.
You’ve dreamed up a fantasy –
a beautiful mystery of me.
I’m sorry I’m not what you want.
I’m sorry if I stirred any of those thoughts.
And I know I shouldn’t apologize,
but this is me – an expert at being sorry.
