    Mask

    The mask you wear
    Will no longer hide the disgust that lies within.
    A facade like yours
    Will no longer disguise a life that's full of sin.

    It's tattered edges and worn out lies
    will no longer leave me a fool.
    Now exposed is the crime
    and things you've done, so cruel.

    The mask you wear
    cannot contain a life as filthy as yours.
    A fake I.D.
    will not get you through Heaven's locked doors.

    You fight for life like all the ones
    that have gone down in vain.
    Just so that you can live
    a life that's not insane.

    Twisting and turning, now at a dead end
    you say that I'm to blame.
    When I was the one who stopped your tracks
    and ended this sick game.

    The mask you wear has fallen off
    and exposed who you really are.
    I guess all the lives you twisted along the way
    Never got you very far.

    .....written from the cloak of the victim who one day drew the line of personal space saying,"No and Not Again".... and this is where the healing Begins......... and whether you write of experience or observation, the result is startling Strength.... really, very Strong poem here.

    I've only read a couple of your pieces so far, but I must say they are extremely stong! I like what you did here, reflecting on the image, while speaking from another persons view. If I got that right, that's how I read it...
