the mask over the heart

an emotional outburst

emotional poem

you pull me closer
then push me away
you say you miss me
and then walk away
I can’t even figure out
whether its the truth
or some bunch of lies
I can’t be this sleuth
like that fresh start,
you talk again
and the day starts
with the rising sun
then you go fade away
into the dusk
leaving me standing alone
in the dark
why is the world
such a grim place
I don’t know,
I’m too scared to ask
what if you just say
you hate me…
and finally remove
that black mask
