The Mask

The mask I wear is just an illusion
Put on with haste to cause you confusion
I hide behind it all my shame
When I look through it you can’t see my pain
The mask I wear is surreal
For with my true self you could not deal
The demons it hides deep within
Those unholy creatures are my darkest sins

Oh yes Lewis....so true....when I was younger my make up was my mask...even is now to some extent...but we all have a soul mate who we can always be ourselves with...it's just finding them....
But on CS, some don't know when they wear or don't wear a mask...tricky business online dating....even if you never ever meet....rolling on the floor laughing

nice poem...and merely pondering, perhaps our masks are a great part of us. we all tend to alter our personna depending on who or what or where or why. maybe such metamorphosis is absolutely necessary for survival....
