Post The Mask

The Mask

So softy sealed her lips keep all,
The hurt and pain only she recalls
From dimming the light of someoneís day,
Just to hear the words Ďare you OK?'

A disguise so real, no one would know
The day to day struggle I long to show,
Through the beauty and laughter of a delusory mask
Itís no wonder they donít even stop to ask
If my life is still perfect as soon as night falls,
When itís just me, my head and all these four walls

But when itís too much to bare my friend,
itís come to the point you can no longer pretend
That even your smile is too heavy to hold,
The cheerful little girl youíve always sold

Still too lost to find the words to say,
A notepad and pen show me the way
To free me from the bars of this cage,
And let my heart bleed all over the page

A clear mind and a story to tell,
About a time in life I did nothing but dwell.
Out from the darkness and into the light,
Bared faced and raw with no mask in sight.
