Shadow on an unprimed linen

My shadow on an unprimed linen
The hate I’d try to keep hidden
Had been casted on this linen
This emotion I’m feeling
Got me thinking I’m tripping

I’m trying so hard not to feel like a victim
But I  can’t help it my secret is out in the open.

There is no need to faint
it’s just your shadow not paint
Once the light is off it’ll fade
And remember, it won’t stay
Just like a mirage, it’s not even there
Just be strong, there’s no need to fear
