A mask is a life, dancing in time

To waltz to a music, only in mind

Never to show truth, peeking through fear

Swinging between notes, only you hear

And as each dance, clothed behind a smile

Moves to a rhythm, mesmerised awhile

But alas this journey, as each mask falls

Slipping into song, another opening calls

Bringing us closer, this charade we start

Finalised at last, when the lights depart

And in this dark, the truth is seen

A beauty at last, where the mask had been.
