Undercover

She is undercover.
Deep, endless heart under shallow skin,
Waves of pain under sunshine smiles,
Burning core of passion under crusted practicality,
Unbreakable roots under frail limbs,
Sing-song soul under stern composure.
And, as any good spy knows,
She must be careful, oh-so cautious,
Not to lose herself
In the illusion.

Hidden People

Are we all hidden people
Living out hidden lives?
Are we all superheroes
Wrapped in workers and wives?
Are we all waiting for someone
To take us away from this place?
Do we think we see each other
While each of us hides our own face?
