The Apprehension of Being Unmasked (Again)

She is a lovely little dancing doll
Trapped inside this embellished music box
Twist and turn the dial to hear her call
Stunning shrieks and howls heard 'round the block

Darkness always surrounds the tiny toy
Terrible thoughts instantly consume her
Dreading the sight of another rash boy
A travesty just waiting to occur

Yet the foolish beauty took a swift chance
A love sprung so fast that they lost their breath
Unforeseen lust and a reckless romance
Tripping and tumbling to her tragic death

If you show him what is under your mask
Be positive that he does the same task
