a mask again

a mask again

A Poem by marie

hiding in myself
please don't let them notice
place my pain upon the shelf
i fade into this masks mist

where on Earth can i run
i'm trapped within this shroud
i long to feel the rising sun
but i'm lost inside the crowd

they all laugh and they all stare
i don't know how long i'll last
i shrink behind a glare
lost and hurt inside the past

take my hand don't let me cry
sing my heart its lullaby
here inside this place i'm falling
spinning round, no ones calling

fight the tears, fight the pain
puting up my mask again
make them laugh, don't tear them down
can't let any se my frown

hide behind a Golden mask
place a flaw so no one sees
play so well forget my task
play so well forget this isn't me

do they see and just ignore
are they all simply blind
someone care, i implore
here i am losing my mind

he sees the mask i hide behind
should i run should i hide?
why don't others see in kind?
jesus lord, please be my guide

"i fade into this masks mist" You need an apostrophe in the word 'masks' in this line.
I loved the message in this piece Marie! Great job!
