Ugly Truth 

My feelings escape me at times 

through the parts of me 

I never had a chance to seal. 

I try to contain them. 

I try to explain them away 

but still they creep me out. 

They peek out from behind my shadow 

that I keep in front of me as a guard. 

And I am ruined 

because the truth feels so ugly.
