About the Poem

I was at a time in my life where everything met at a crossroad. I was alone and slowly losing my mind. One by one, like dominos, everything began cascading down. Friends, family, and my dearest love. My only escape was inside these words.

Masquerade

As I sink into the shadows,
the music begins to fade.
The people have all left me,
and so ends this masquerade.

The food has all been tasted,
bits thrown upon the floor.
My reality sinks in now.
This illusion is no more.

As I look into the mirror,
I cannot give myself a name.
Through all these lies I've hidden,
and lost myself in shame.

The doors will never open
to this castle I have built -
set aside is my pain,
so remains this saddened guilt.
