Your plaster masks are falling apart,
Slowly crumbling as your stern, viper
Eyes show more than you will
Speak – they know every word
Straightforward smile to
Profiled frown

You know that even whispered
Truth could be so profound,
But since I know YOU though,
You’d simply prefer to
Keep all faces covered

It is okay, one can suppose
Those masks will eventually
Shed themselves once pride
Has been swallowed or simply
Stay adorned if not, either way
Hope YOU are not scared.

Your real face is beautiful.
