The Mask


Face covered by mask

You cannot see me

For that is the way

I wish it to be


We all dance

‘Round and ‘round again

We do what we do

And wallow in our sin


Always with faces covered

As we dance at life’s ball

Were we all play

And chance the fall


Shrouded in lies

As we play our part

Leaving to chance

A broken heart


Not trusting to lose

Our personal space

We timidly remove our mask

And show our face
