Masked

Mask your face
Hide from the world
Dance in the darkness
They don't know you
They can't see you
Just a smiling unknown face
A mask to hide yourself

Try on a new identity
A new name
A new face
A mask to hide behind
Slip into another's life
Then all at once you are gone
And a stranger stands in your place

Here we stand
But where are you?
Who am I?
Just a mask in the sea of masked faces
Sequins and feathers
Plastic smiles and paper mache
Painted expressionless
Black and white
Hidden in plain sight

I look for your eyes
The only things not covered
But even here
Mascara and glitter

Where are you?
I rip off a mask
She explodes into dust
I pull off another
And he falls away in a shower of glitter
Must I unmask an entire crowd
Just to find you?
Just to know me?

Masquerade
Where are our identities?
We left them at the door with our hats and cloaks
All we are now are
Masks
Sequins and feathers

Not Like Everybody Else

I’m weird

I’m crazy

I’m me



But you don’t like that



Would you like me if I was like them?



If I laughed at stupid jokes

If I gossiped and insulted

If I think of myself as “popular”

If I had blond hair and blue eyes



If I was like everybody else



Would you like me if I was like them?



If I walked the hallways like I owned them

If I wore braces or glasses

If I wore enough make up to hide my identity

If I smiled all the time and acted like a queen



If I was like everybody else



Would you like me if I was like them?



If I listened but never heard

If I looked but never saw

If I acknowledged but never knew



If I was like everybody else



I’m weird

I’m crazy

But unlike them



I am ME!



You don’t have to like me

I don’t really care



You’re one of them too

You’ve lost yourself and your identity

Return My Identity

Can you return my love?
my stretched land of love for you.

Can you return me my wait?
my long wait to have a glance of you.

Can you return me my days?
my painful lonely days just for you.

Can you return me my nights?
my sleepless nights awake in your dreams.

Can you return me my smile?
my sunny smile shaded by a flood of tears.

Can you return me my embrace?
my tight embrace to grace you in arms.

Can you return me my kiss?
my passionate kiss which was just for you.

Can you return me my identity?
my bright identity which I lost
in the quest to win and acquire you.

Email Hell, Death is Less Painful

Is there a limit before they skim it
for me?
At this point, I have only 450 unanswered
emails
to read

Is that a sign of mental sickness
or just a minor lack of quickness?

I'm kinda hopin' 'they' kill my account
that way, no tension will mount.

Do I have to deal with that 'stuff'
I'm not feelin' it today, nor tomorrow,
nor yesterday I guess
nor last week,
months now?

A mess? Yes

but not for me
just lost friends/family.
Not really
just a lost me

Maybe the solution is to be a non-entity?

forward more obscenity?

Delete it all, assume new identity?

Delete is all, assume no identity
