This mask of mine I wear
I wear it very well
Look. You’ll never see the join
Clearly you won’t tell

I wear it as I need to hide
The mask is my disguise
Look at it really close
But not into the eyes

My eyes I have to shy away
And turn them from your view
Search for your reflection
All you see is you

The rest of me is covered
Screened behind the smile
I let you think you know me
Whilst hiding all the while

I cloak my inner feelings
A shroud around my soul
I wonder do you see that
I’m hidden holed up whole

Unveiled bright eyes flash
Then close to blanket stare
Try to search the depths of me
But am I truly there

Strange, there’s nothing hidden
Nothing you could find
But for the dark dank depthless
Murked mantle of my mind

This screen I wear is a lie
Or is it really true
If you guess try find me
I’ll never let you through.

This mask of mine I wear
I wear it all the time
Outside is for anyone
Inside is only mine.

The alliteration used is pretty powerful, as is the message! I think way too many of us can relate to these words. Sometimes it's ok to hold up a tough front, but only as long as we're able to let down the barrier every once in awhile too!! Great poem!

Very relatable. Also, powerful. And, you know, awesome.
