The Masks We Wear

(The title's a quote from a once friend btw)

Lift my mask and you will see
Black smudged face and blood shot eyes
Untruths I've told, webs of lies
Lift my mask and you will see
A fight, a battle, a struggle, a war
Not dead nor living, who and what for?
Lift my mask and you will see
a broken girl, like withered flames
I'm dying. At my temple the gun aims
Lift my mask and you will see
Dripping blood and bundles of scars
Wishing, hoping, crying staring to the stars
If I lift my mask what will I see?
Nothing important. Only me.
