Illusion

My smile is sweet

My eyes are kind

My voice is calm

My mind is in pieces

 

I’m polite

I’m obedient

I’m respectful

I'm crying inside

 

My dress is beautiful

My makeup perfect

My perfume sweet

My chains are intact 

 

My words carry wisdom

My movements are graceful

My song could rival a siren’s

My heart is heavy with sorrow

 

The perfect friend

The perfect student

The perfect daughter

The perfect doll

 

This poem is about: 
Me
