A.N. – Hello everyone! Poetry is my newest discovery, so take it easy on me – but be honest! I wrote this with James and Lily in mind, but if you can't understand the connection, that's alright. Tell me in a review:)
Whenever the Mask Slips
Time and time again I've tried
To understand you completely
What's underneath the mask
The countenance of fake confidence
And an infuriating amount of pride.
I've seen you maybe once or twice
That shadow of doubt
The flicker of vulnerability
It only lasts a moment
And is gone at my second glance
But I know now that it is there
My imagination remains controlled.
I used to think that I had lost it.
I truly was insane.
Until I caught a glimpse of you
Behind your mask of pain.
A.N. – What do you think? Good? Bad? Indifferent? Let me know!
