an epitome of ~artificial beauty~ (MMXVII)

A free-spirited gypsy, she certainly is
Disguised beneath a silver tiara and lavish brocades of evening robes
Yearning for a shot to break free
Longing for the courage to flee
A duchess of societal norm by morning, a dreamer of idiosyncrasies by evening
Concealed by modesty, protected from society
Patiently carving out an escape route to
wheresoever liberty might be
