Your scream pierces the room

While tortured by a masked figure

Who is behind the mask?

You wonder

A needle stiches up your mouth

So you no longer scream

The mother you disappointed?

You wonder

Scissors snip with no remorse

At both your Achilles tendons

The father that abandoned you?

You wonder

Hands reach to grab your hair

Tearing it out of your skull

The sister full of jealousy?

You wonder

A knife plunges deep

Into the small of your back

A friend left in the past?

You wonder

A sword strikes swiftly

Aimed straight at your heart

A lover once lost?

You wonder

You reach out your hand

To reveal whose causing you pain

Who is behind the mask?

You wonder

Shock and horror set in as you see

The exact reflection staring back

How could you be behind the mask?

You wonder
