Smoke

I know the smoke blinds you
Makes it hard to see your way through
Gets in your lungs and steals your breath
But it’s not real
There aren’t any flames lapping at your heels
There aren’t any demons to battle
It’s a mirage to steal your joy
So you don’t see
Your perfection
Your exception
Your light that blinds with it’s brightness
So smoke had to form to dampen its shine
Don’t be blinded
See your way through
Take deep breaths
For you, are real…
