With hidden aches
With pasted smiles
She pretends to shy.
With muffled gags
With screaming moans
She feigns to have her mind blown.
Biting the bullet
Her body, sold-
She attempts at being dignified
Rendering herself to be bold!
I am a strong independent woman,
They say, but I do have my own doubts.
You are built of iron, but does it never break?
You are self-sufficient,
You don’t need anyone,
But how can I be my own doppelganger?
You are a confident woman
They say, but I do have my reservations,
For deep down I am shattering bit by bit
The iron has been hit too hard,
It’s moulding and remoulding,
Losing all its true essence.
