Memento Mori- It means that nothing lasts forever, no one is immortal, sooner or later you will die and things will come to an end. It also helps you realize that while you are living you should do the most with your life, live life to the fullest.

I stand at a distance and I can see your eyes

How you live your life

I can see through their lies

The masks they wear are weak and tear

They break apart...

Such pathetic art

As I watch you, the feelings pursue

Yet shyness holds me back

My life is nothing but black

Yet you can't see, the mask I wear

The mask that is me

Waiting at a distance

The mask is not seen

But if you ever see the mask that is me

Would you ever let me know?

Is it ridiculous, only a school girl's dream?

To think that perhaps these feelings of mine would ever be shared?

That they would ever grow?

I know, I know...

I shouldn't dream of such things

I shouldn't hope for such impossibilities


I do

Though will my feelings ever be allowed to grow?

Will they be set free?

Or will they be forever trapped behind this mask?
