Heart’s Desire in the Dark Mirror

Waiting is the best defense
when you’re faced with false pretense
In the mirror, you will see
the truth, or what you want to be

Nothing’s truer than heart’s desire
nothing purer, higher, finer
but deeper still, another truth
rawer, naked, pulsing sooth

What you do pretend away
faces you in every day
Open up, embrace your fear
the ones you see in your dark mirror

“This I am,” you think, then look!
Not anymore, that’s all it took
to change the shame you hid away
To own it, it will change to stay

as something you can really love
To understand yourself, not shove
into the darkness all your shame
which is heart’s desire by another name

Own it, love it, open wide
break on through to the other side
