Parallel Paths

Contrasting Realities

In her laughter, my tears silently flow,

She shines bright, while I prefer the shadow.

In her embrace, I stand apart,

She's a beacon of love, I'm lost in the dark.

She radiates beauty, while I'm tangled in stress,

Her joy contrasts my deep distress.

Behind a flawless facade, I silently confide,

She unknowingly shelters the turmoil inside.
