A shadow in the darkness,
Waiting to be seen In proper light,
Hidden And lost.

An echo in the daylight,
Bouncing on every chance Yet fading into the distance,
Fearful And safe.

A completely seen-through soul,
Like a ghost But with an impenetrable heart Buried in deception,
Never To be found.

Knowing you But being forgotten,
My tears, my dreams, falling into the ocean,
Being washed away,
Into The distance

Dreaming of taking Off the mask,
Dropping it into the ocean,
And letting the waves wash My hopes To shore.

Let me reveal myself,
Because I know you But you've Never known me Outside Of this trap.

I want to take off this mask,
Throw it into the ocean,
But I fear that your love for me Will Wash away With It.
