Mask

Whose mask

Grips,

Viced on scalp

And brain,

In dungeon’s dark depression?

Who holds, controls,

Wields

The key

To your

Suppression or oppression?

 

Invisible

Intruder,

Grim

Warden

Of the night.

Whose twin,

Alter-self

Decries,

Denies

Light?

 

Empowered

Lies,

Fortifying self

At your expense?

 

Have you

The key,

The duplicate,

Self-freeing

Padlock broken?

Who is the

Master

Of your life?

Whose voice

Is spoken?

    1. I was thinking about ‘The Man In The Iron Mask’ today. I don’t know why. Maybe I felt trapped at work. 🙂 It got me thinking about control. Externally and internally. This is how I spend my lunch times. ;)x
