does the mask give meaning?
why did you don it in the first place?
did the diversion carry you away?
now, you can't even emerge
from behind the facade....
do the dreams give clues?
veils move of their own accord
or by the surreal's drafted whisper,
it only takes the mind's
to cause a moment's rift
does delusion fuel your control?
what if you loosed those reins?
would the world splinter
into conception's fractured offspring?
does the shadow bind the faults?
does it lead one to destruction?
or discovery of a path strewn
ascertain that the shroud
haunts you before realeasing
do the words dim the man?
draw the shade?
glance a blow?
can the curses be heard
above the dull roar of ignorance?
bounteous and extreme
polish the light of intelligence
