My Mask

My favorite time of year 
is Halloween.
It's the one day out of the year
when everyone else wears a mask, instead of just me.
I am reclusive very,
retarded socially
and as uninteresting as dull can possibly be.
Some may hear this and totally disagree,
because they see what I allow them to see only.
They see my mask that I wear publicly
whenever I'm in situations socially.
Behind my mask I am reaching out desperately
to assimilate the behavior of others I have studied
who find themselves entertaining others socially.
Inevitably it all ends up being too much work for me
and so I return back to my life of reclusive solitary
and remove my mask alone at home where no one can see
the reclusive very, retarded socially,
uninteresting as dull can possibly be,
ME.

    That is when you find the others who'd like to sit at home without their masks as well and watch Fifth Element or the long version of the original Dune! I really enjoyed this piece; deeper than many realize.
