the mask over the heart

the mask over the heart

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
