Are you There?
Is that a mask you wear?
Or is this your face?

Do those dark , flashing eyes hide grief?
The up turned smile,
 barely there,
 might hide the sorrow eternally felt.
Is it rosy cheeks that hide
the pale complexion of your spirit?

Does this mask you wear deceive the world?
Words thought, but unspoken
tell the only truths.
Will you ever remove your mask
to let me truly know you?
