Pretender - Poem by Della Perry
Bluff it, feign it, stimulate it
I'm the pretender
My appearance hidden behind the mask.
Deceit and deception were always my friends.
Posing in my masquerade,
Actor in my pantomime
The writer, the editor, the lead, the producer.
The the curtain falls
Truth is revealed to all
I can quit the pretense
Be myself once more.
