I am the queen of false faces
I fake half of everything I do
Everyone thinks they know me
I use to think that too

I have a mask for every occasion
celebrations, recreations,
contemplations, realizations,
altercations, even education

I have a story for everyone
sad ones, happy ones,
creepy ones, crappy ones,
sappy ones, and cold ones

But I am queen of fake face
and I wish for a king
someone to get past the column of masks
on my face
and fine me so I can breathe easy

I am the queen of liars
I don't know how I got here but
don't trust a thing I say
It might just be a mask talking

i loved the idea of the queen being the queen of the liars and that you don't even know who you are anymore:):) this is a great piece of writing!
