Shaman - Horse

Poem - Their Disguise

How can you make me lose the will to embrace a person or group? Reveal to me the anger underneath. After I know what lurks underneath, I can no longer participate. Why? I suspect PTSD type symptoms going back to very (very) early childhood abuse and participating in relationships with bipolar people.

Their Disguise

I ask too much of the world
for the truth to be revealed
kept on the surface for me to see

instead it hides down below
waiting to bite as serpents would
from the box that hides their kind

if only I could be ignorant
not knowing the darkness laid within
how life's companions may attack

to see this creature underneath
robs me of my ease of mind
creates defenses I can't take down

now the world has been transformed
the surface is not my friend
when I know soul’s dark content

as they believe they’re concealed
submerged beneath their disguise
I’ll not fall for the deceit.
