Mask - Poem by ecmnesiac angel

A smile on my face
Is all that you see
You’ve just been fooled
That’s not the real me

The me that you know
Isn’t really true
Coz I hide it from everyone
Yes…even from you

I’m afraid to break down
All the walls around me
And just let you people in
And let you get to know me

I can’t allow that
I absolutely cannot
I don’t want to be vulnerable
So just leave me to rot

But then again…
Sigh! I take that back
All I said was bullshit
And a load of crap

I want to learn the art
Of letting oneself go
To express the real me
I’m not too eager to show

God knows I’ve tried
To rid myself of this mask
But getting rid of it
Is such a difficult task

I’ll need your patience
And a little understanding
As well as a lot of time
For my mask to start cracking
