A mask is all I need…

I sometimes think I need a veil – a veil that is morphed to look exactly like my face,

And lemme tell you why –

I wouldn’t want to show you every tiny miniscule of the hundred thousand thoughts a scatterbrain thinks,
Or every flicker of emotion that reverberates through my soul,
I wouldn’t want you to read my mind watching the expressions that freeze on every tiny muscle in my face,
I wouldn’t want you to sense my inner turmoil, my thirst, my heartbreaks, my disappointments,
I wouldn’t want you to see my unshed tears, my annoyance, my anger, my vulnerability –

I wouldn’t want you to know, that I yearn for a mask – to masquerade my way into this show of reality.

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)
