i went out from under the covers of my bed
and the stillness of 5 am rings in my head.
my family's face is all but a mask.
to exist i put myself in a flask.
i exist to drain my life energy
and to be my own enemy.
i met this girl and she took mine off for me.
it was like someone finally answered my plea.
she gave me something to look for
and even more, something to adore.
little at a time she cracked her mask
one day it shattered and, alas!
the most beautiful girl stared me in the eye.
both of us teared up and cried.
the world confined us to suffocate
and without each other we would break.
hand in hand we are the best of friends
and without our mask a new journey begins
never again will we hide away
never again will we be alone
now and forever we will take on today
now and forever we will be at home
