Just My Mask

Of course I'm fine,
why do you ask?
Oh don't mind this,
it's just my mast,
It hides the grief,
it hides the strife,
I wear this mask, to
escape the knife,

Don't forget this,
my pain is real,
I'm not lying, this
is how I feel,
You sit there
saying, it can't be
It is for me, just
not for you,

You say my heart,
must be a sight,
Cold as ice, and
black as night,
It's not my heart,
only my soul,
But killing me, must
be your goal,

You're getting
close, I hope you
You really don't,
have far to go,
Soon enough, I'll
reach my end,
You'll have my soul,
to tear and rend,

But you don't know,
you never ask,
You never look,
beyond the mask,
The look on my face,
is giving me away,
I wonder now, what
will you say?

You've asked me
here, you'll know
I'll take it off,
I'll take a bow...
I can't do it now,
tell you the truth,
I must keep up, my
pretense of youth,
