There's something holding me back

There's something holding me back

And I can't seem to find

Whatever it is.

There's a mask over my eyes

Can you see it?

If you look closely

The cracks are visible

The pages penned by this hand

Hide in a dismissed book

Never to be read again

The articulations of this soul

Inadequate to the intensity

Simple expression is beyond me

So many things hidden

I'm just too tired.
