All You Really Need to do is Ask

This mask I wear is not real
It's what I think and not what I feel

I wear this mask to hide away
from the faces that wallow in the gray

You do not see me for who I am
All you see is this pathetic sham

You meet a man but you get a boy
Filled with pain but you see joy

I come in the day though I am the night
You only truly see me in the absence of light

You do not listen when you cannot see
And somehow that dictates who I am to be

Maybe someday I will remove this mask
But all you really need to do is ask
