The Woman Behind the Curtain

Pay no attention to the woman behind the curtain,

But she is the real me.


The woman you see is a fake,

Pretending to be what others like to see.

 

The woman behind the curtain would never play coy,

Or hold her tongue.

 

She would never hide her beliefs

And play dumb.

 

The curtain veils me so beautifully,

No one would ever see the fire which is me.

 

Unfortunately for you, but beneficial for me,

The curtain is burning down right now as I speak.
