The Mask

You hide yourself
behind the mask
a different face
over the one
that is yours
and you feel safe
no longer afraid
of someone
knowing you
as you are
and hurting you
for what you are
sensitive, trusting
and soft at heart
and I wonder sometimes
how you would survive
this indifferent world
without this mask
but then I wonder again
how long it might be
before you yourself
become one
with the mask
and that my friend
for me would be sad
for it was only with you
as yourself my dear
that I too did not
need a mask.
