The secret lives we live

I am not myself

this facade in daylight

this plastic version of me.

We are all alternate realities:

the rockstar

the primadonna

the ballerina

the physicist.

Splitting identities

in shadows of dusky twilight,

a mere glimmer of truth.

We dream

of freedom in flying,

forgetting our faults,

then fall back to Earth

unknown again.
