Mask

by Mandi

Venetian Mask My world isn’t crashing
for I'm still here
slowly fading
with each breath I take
I lose a little bit of sanity
I've lost hope
hiding behind
this mask
they call me
for I'm not
here
but off in my
own little fantasy
lost in another
time and place
for once I wish
that someone
would take notice
of me
and this pain I bear
shatter my cloak and mask
I’m forced to hide behind
