Masked Persona

masked

She looked the same to everyone

Masked under all that counterfeit

The way she mirrored all their moves

How proficiently she tried to fit

.

Her conduct was enough to bluff all but one

He could see right through her oblivion

Struggled endlessly to crack those walls

Devoted all he had in this overhaul

.

But his endeavors were clear to all but one

“No one ever could value my true perception”

Believing this, she let her insecurities be in control

And he drained out his entity drilling in a hole

Self-condemnation

guiltWhat’s concealed inside of me is a secret untold

Embellished by my demons, ashamed of its own skin

Wish I could scream it out, wishing I was that bold.

Staring at the ceiling all night, I wonder how guilt could be this strong

This self-conflicted dispute happening within

How can I end this absurdity, this is not where I belong

Each day I take a step, each day I get a little brave

And some day I will turn on the lights for them to look in

Someday I won’t be afraid of this unintended sin

Until then, I guess, I will have to live with these regretful waves

Until then I let my faults control me, until then I am enslaved
