Another class project thing. I rather like it.
Cut glass of a scream
Rips through a throat already raw
This painted mask is ripped clean
A blank face remains, bloody and torn
What was a somebody is a nobody
Malleable and left bare
Unknown and a terrifying deformity
A monster in human skin.
Mad scramble for a disguise
Safety in a mask, a lie
Armor against the masses
A singular apocalypse behind faceted eyes
Helpless and alone, screaming into the silence
Pretending and hoping not to be Seen.
A chain shot through the heart
Anchored to a ghost and wisps of dreams
Tangible when left naked and alone
A dual-nature of innocence and rage
Wild and untamed with tougher predators
A secret locked without a key.
One last try, one more mask
Bright eyes and ruby lips
An elegant figure in a dance for dominance
A delicate game of cruel smiles and deadly words
Honesty without the truth
Learn their ways and spiral into darkness
Another monster of a different kind.
