Masks

"I switch between two masks. My experience in battle has taught me to be cunning like that." (Zechs Merquise/Millardo Peacecraft, Gundam Wing).

I wear a mask to hide from all of you.

I wear a mask to be who you want me to be

I wear a mask just to love you

I wear a mask to understand you


When my mask goes off, you don't know who or what I am,

Or shall I wear it so long that you can forget who I am without it?

I wear a mask because I am nothing

Maybe with it on, I am something

But tell me who is the face without the mask?
