Masquerade - Poem by Jesse Griffin
I see all others,
in their perfect masks.
Dancing all as one.
I weave my way,
through the glass smiles,
and join their never ending dance.
But I cannot stay,
for my secrets begin to show,
and my sharade begins to fade.
My mask wears thin.
My porcelain lie cracks,
and I slowly reaveal who I am.
I can no longer hold together the pieces,
and my mask fall and shatters,
revealing my true face.
Everyone turns away.
Unknowing of my real face,
and unaware of my existance.
I stand alone amongst the crowd,
screaming at the top of my lungs,
but they continue on dancing.
As I become enveloped in the sea,
overcome by the wave of lies.
I slowly fade between the Masked Ones.
