Masquerade


Masquerade
I was fooled by you
For you wore a thousand masks and none of them is really you
Extensive knowledge comes with time
Ten years since December 20,1996 made no impact
Change is inevitable
Jekyll by day
Hyde by night
A Horcrux needed to be destroyed
No longer entice my heart

Masquerade
The person I once known now completely different
Who are you?
Too many layers
Nasty and vile
Caring and loving
Disrespectful and cold
Generous and thoughtful
Cheater and user
Unable to distinguish one's true identity
Yet only you can call me into aliveness

Masquerade
Hide from me in reality
Enter my dreams here and there as He-Who-Must-Not-Be Named
A different personality everyday
Spare me from false illusions and false hope
What lies beneath, I wonder
Somewhere is the real you

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
