It takes me by surprise -
There is someone who needs as I do.
The need to hide;
The mask created;
Feelings are hidden effectively -
They appear not to exist,
But I am informed of the error of this.
They do
They are strong
They are for me.
So, let me know the truth of this.
Take down the mask
Let me in.
I cannot think to hurt you,
However, vulnerability hurts.
You will find it hard,
Hard but ultimately rewarding.
I will do all I can;
Soothe your pain,
Help to bind your wounds -
Maybe we will even lose the need to hide.
We could burn our masks
And become ourselves once more -
