Behind the Mask

behind_the_mask_by_blixxa73-d6lohoh

I’ve seen through the mask
Myriads of vacant craters
Scattered pools of rage, dead stars
A landscape infinitely stark

Your obsession with me, undeniably dark
a toxic blend of Love and Hate
a desperate wish to make me forget
What it is that lies behind the mask

  1. The depth in these words is magnificent! The description of real face while looking beyond the mask is enthralling. The dark obsession and the toxic blend of love and hate are my favorite here. *Applauds* 🙂

    Powerful lines. They convey so much – – i understand them in a painful way i suppose – but i was definitely touched by this. i have received a new portal through which to view my life and i am eternally thankful. Wonderful read!

    1. It pained me to write those lines, I’m sure you understood them as *I* felt them myself. I’m sorry for the unhappy experiences that made those lines resonate with you. Thank you for reading and for your comment too, I’m touched this meant something to you…
