NaPoWriMo Day 8: Disguise

he was her prince, her knight
in shining armor,
the man who’d keep her safe,
he was her harbor

vanquishing the fears
that kept her awake at night,
but not from the demons
that stayed out of his sight

until the day came when he saw them
from behind her eyes
and he wondered how long they’d known
of the demons hiding behind his disguise.
