Fakin’ it

 

Sober in an instant

 

It all has him wondering

What would his life be if they’d never met?

He’s the truest version of himself he’s ever been

Because she brings the best out in him

Who would he be today without her?

He suspects the answer is one he wouldn’t like

He spent a lifetime hiding from himself

Hiding himself from others

But, in that moment she reached out

Towards him

He began to face his enemy

Meet his gaze in the mirror

Acknowledge his strengths

Accept his flaws

If she’d never found him

Would he have found

The strength to save himself?
