Inspired by Daily Post word prompt, Darkness
Eyes shut tight, to hide out beyond,
Holding to nothing, freed from my bonds.
Permitted to go, forced to stay,
Standing up tall, beginning to sway.
Unable to leave, can no longer remain.
A mask to hide the scars,
A smile to hide the wars.
All I plead, falls on false ears.
They no longer hear.
I no longer stay.
Gone from the beyond.
Released from those bonds.
My name is Mask.
You don’t know me.
But it’s all you’ll ever see.
