In a peculiar place

Part of me crying out 

Yearning to be noticed

To be appreciated…that human part 

The thing that makes us male or female 

The part of me that the world sees

anonymous company

A masquerade ball

Fantasy game

Naive and unknowing

Opening up for miscues 

Trampled for hope lost to truth 

Willingly risking sanity’s edge for love

Going all in lends passion in droves

Parts of whole lost as reality comes

Heart squeezing suffocation 

That familiar home

Burn it down
