Masks 9/3-14

You and I 
Have seen too much
Of how harsh
This wold 
Can be

So we show
A different side
Of ourselves 
To people 
And portray ourselves 
As hardened
So that the world
Keeps it's self
At arms length. 
Because we have seen
What can happen 
If we let it get too close
We wear masks
To keep them from seeing
How vulnerable we can be. 

You have seen me
Without mine
At my worst
When I was ready
To give certain people
The satisfaction
Of seeing me 
Blow a hole
Into mine

And you're still here
   Slowly untying the strings 
      That holds yours
          In place
