My Jekyll



We’re living in a world of fiction.
Confiding my conviction.
Each character that we meet,
Disguises their deceit.
In my experience I derive a conclusion.
Their delusions produce confusion.
All my co-stars would overtly agree.
Though I try, my demons run free.
My characters flaws have implied
That my Jekyll doesn’t hide.
