Masks

Masks

A Poem by Jerry

Your true emotions 
Hide deep below flesh 
Your outside veneer, 
A mere empty mesh
If you dig deep, 
You're bound to find
What you hide away 
In the back of your mind  

You hide from the light, 
Away from the sun 
Fearing a fight 
That has never been won  

Live under the moon, 
Hidden in darkness 
Your fear's for the fool,
Your fear is of judgement  

You will forge your mask, 
But you must beware; 
For soon you will soon notice, 
That you are not there  

Witches and warlocks 
Dance through your room, 
You still wear your mask 
In spite of your doom 
Voices ignored 
Forever grow louder, 
Temptation and hatred, 
Beginning to flower  

You pray to your god, 
But there's no salvation; 
You're too far gone 
With your ideations 

In spite of all this, 
You still wear your mask 
Even though you all know 
The price of this task

I really like the rhythm of this piece and how everything flows seamlessly. The subject is something many, including myself can relate to, and is penned in a way that is refreshing, as opposed to being cliche. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and am look forward to reading more of your work! Also, I see you from H-Town too, so bonus points for that lol
