Wearing a mask
Pretending to be something I'm not
Impressing you, with the persona of a stranger
Without being caught.
Who knew, you would be doing the same.
Each step in time with the music
Slowly, but surely;
My mind and heart become confused
Behind the mask,
Another person glows
"Why you?" My mind asks.
"Why not?" My heart answers.
So I set out on the task.
In the middle of the dance floor
Under the chandelier's glow
You reached out your hand,
And blindly I follow
Not knowing the answer was in a dreamland.
The lights, a spotlight
The music blocking the world
Just us in a fairytale.
Until we parted as you twirled,
Making the world black and white.
Confused and lost,
The touch of your hand disappearing
Struggling at all cost
To keep reality from appearing,
Reminding me of the cruelty and jugment.
I need you...
Everything is so much clearer
I don't need a mask
And neither do you.
I no longer need to fear
Of what others may ask.
As long as you are by my side
As long as we can dance together,
I will toss the mask aside
Hoping it will last forever.
