The Veil.
 
Invisible defects hidden from you.
Allow you to break me down the way you do.
You let me fly but, you won't let me soar.
Flightless bird of dreams unrealized.

Eyes wide open but,you can't see a thing.
You read no hidden meaning in anything.

Vanity serves the vain a veil.
It hides the beauty contained in others.
Oceans of self doubt exist in you.

Complimenting another is something you can't afford.
My dreams are not up for debate anymore.
