[Poetry] Inside A Gilded Cage

Bricks and marbles,
Silver and gold;
Laughter and smiles,
Is what others see.
Blinded by confusion,
Bound by friendship;
Blinded by innocence,
Bound by duty.
The clouds of confusion has lifted,
The mists of innocence shattered;
Only friendship and duty,
Is what binds me here.
Inside the gilded cage,
Everything is unnaturally bright and gay;
Masking a truth,
That is dark and cold.
Long suppressed dreams of the soul,
And quiet yearnings of the heart;
Slowly rising to disturb,
The tranquil waters of my mind.
