MRS. HYDE I’m afraid of the person I think I might be in my Mrs. Hyde personality— a heart and soul is her expensive fee. I put on a pretense so the world cannot see her. Perhaps I am the pretense and she is me; I’m afraid of the person I think I might be, a siren who makes people love what they see while feeding on inner insecurities. My heart and soul is her expensive fee. I lock her up; she still breaks free from the dungeon of my morality. I’m afraid of the person I think I might be. I cannot fight her; she’s stronger than me— so I watch and I hurt as she hurts those close to me, Their hearts and souls her expensive fee. I need to wake the sleeping knight in me to slay the evil beast heroically. I’m afraid of the person I think I might be, A heart and a soul is her expensive fee. —Briana VinZant
