Callisto's revenge
by The Bard Gabrielle

A favorite word
A good description
License to paranoia
Probing constantly
For true meanings
Unable to take
Words at face value
A quest
For what lies beneath
Can you ever
Truly know
What lies behind
Their masks?
The need to know
Is power
The need
To control
Justified by
Words of help
A fine line to
Walk between the two
Secrets better left inside
Without definite end
For what reasons
Do you ask
Your questions?
Be careful
The question can reveal
More than the answer
To one who listens
A movement of the arm
A swift intake
Of breath
Now what have
You revealed?
What are you thinking
Right now?
What secrets
Have you shown?
Now I have you...


Do you recognize yourself
In a mirror?
Yet you cannot
Recognize the reading
Of your soul
Between these lines
Are you blind?
In a physical sense
But your ability
To see
Depends on what
You're willing
To face
Could it be
Any clearer?
Of course
Could you
Come out and state it?
Of course
Why not then?
I want
To make you
Work for it

The plainer it is
The more
They refuse to see
And look beyond
For hidden meanings
