This Mask

this mask i wear
to hide the shame
to hide my words
to hide my name

this mask i wear
cannot replace
the sorrowed eyes
my furrowed face

this mask i wear
is so real to me
you seem not to know
you seem not to see

they pass me by
without a glance
i sit alone
in my own lonely trance

this mask i wear

isn’t

me.

this mask i wear

is all

you see.

This is a very interesting poem, and well worded. All though 'the masks' of poetry have been put on so many times, this is a new face; and I like the look. Well done with this well written piece, my friend.
