fallen

is there any
further to fall
than falling out
of love with life
in the middle
of nowhere
you're somewhere
and when somewhere
you're lost
hopes dashed
on a rain splashed
windshield

masks


every reflection
a stranger mirrored
inducing guilt
as if not being
true to self
a mask comes off
another worn
some cracked,
some whole
some white
with nothingness
black
more welcoming
to wear
to embrace
what it brings
pleasure or pain,
full or empty,
anything welcomed
to feel again
strangers wander
the carnival of souls
comedy or tragedy,
each one
a monster hiding
unleashed conformity
unbridled desires
truth so seldom told
musicians wait
for the dancers to arrive
only to find
broken thespians
drinking sour wine
eyelet hollows burn to see
drowning
     sinking
          spiraling
until the ember fades
closed eyed death
not welcome yet
age of sleep
to dream again
Awakened, dark
desires disappear
until the mask falls
beauty
will not be clear
