Beyond The Mask
In the darkness you come to me,
never to be together in the light of day
Why do you never stay? Am I only
good enough when there is no one
else around? Am I just to sit upon
the shelf until you have use of me?
I can only blame myself for I allow
this to happen. I fool myself into
believing that I finally belong somewhere
and that you truly want to be with me.
But with the break of day I realize how
foolish I was to believe such a thing.
Did I really think it could be real?
When will I ever learn that they
only want me for their amusement?
They never see who I really am, they
see only what they want, but
none have ever dared to look
beyond the mask.........

I remeber asking myself these same questions a few years back. I think we both have learned to see beyond the masks we wear, knowing that we are more than the mask.

This is a sad look into someones heart and emotional rollercoaster. I believe you have to understand that its the other person wearing the mask. I like this type of writing and I like this one.I dont know how to write anything about flowers and puppies but give me this stuff all day long.

Anyone can make you smile or cry, but it takes someone special to
make you smile when you already have tears in your eyes
