this is about a falling out i had with a friend.

masquerade.

you wear your masks
when you come around,
(a different shade for each season)
speaking to me in riddles,
your forked tongue
spilling poison into my ear.
how many times will you try
to pull the veil over my eyes
until i can't see
what you really are?
how many times will i let
you blind me
until i can't recognize your face?
you remove your masks
but i'm sorry
that i'm sorry to say
your face isn't something i recognize
anymore.
you tell me nothing's wrong
and we both know that's nothing but a lie.
i guess that's all we are to each other.
how silly of me to think
that together we could have been
something great.
