9. The Mask (Poem)

Our relationship resembles a mask.
It was fun to wear around for a while,
It had so many colors; all so bright.
But we both know that you can’t wear it forever.
You eventually have to take it off.
And show all the darkness that lies behind.

Text messages were nice but you hid behind
Then as if to cover my face with a mask.
Was I that ugly to you? Can I take this off?
We talk forever it seems then for a while
You shut me out and those weeks feel like forever
Then you decide to come back and my day is bright.

We talk of going to Europe and watching the bright
Lights twinkling along with the stars behind
It, sitting out on that hotel balcony forever,
And shopping for souvenirs, maybe buying a mask
And wearing it with the dress I just bought for a while
But I don’t want to hide; can I just leave it off?

Those fantasies are nice, but reality is off
And on its way, not stopping, and planning our bright
Futures that are soon coming up, keeping us apart for a while
I’m off to college, you to the marines, leaving each other behind.
I don’t know what will become of us, but there is always that mask
That will tie us together forever.

But what will you do when you have to leave forever
And come back with another girl. What if she’s off
Somewhere else for a while. Will you just give me that mask
Again? Will we go back to our old ways? Our lives so bright?
She will eventually come back, and you will leave me behind
Like you always do. Just me and that mask for a while.

This is all too real and sometimes for a while
I feel like you love me more than you say you do, forever
It seems. You always choose her over me and leave me behind
And you always come back to you me when she is off
Somewhere, making her like better and bright
But then she comes back, and you hide me with the mask.

I can’t do this anymore. I’m taking it off.
I love you too much to have to use something so bright
The one thing that ties us together? I’m throwing away the mask.
