"I love you, master."

Everybody has a mask
Some people thicker than others
People hide their faces
You can never tell what's behind someone's thick mask
But sometimes, very rarely, someone will lift their mask for you
There's only one person I'd lift my mask for
But only if they asked

The author's comments:
This isn't my best poem, but it's true. Everyone has something they hide, and sometimes they show people.

I like this, it is well written and very thought provoking. It made me wonder, "what is my mask, and who, if anyone, do I lift it for?" hmmmm...... anyhow, great job!
