The Masquerader

Location

I am the master Masquerader

In daylight, I am calm and subtle
 
At night I am wild and devious,like the raging sea
 
Bullets and bruises in my heart
 
Wrecked too many times before
 
I will never fall again
 
My disguise is my protection
 
I build up walls to seal my heart from intruders
 
My smile is my shield from my attackers
 
My laugh, can lighten up the darkest sky
 
My voice can crumble walls and rumble the fiery pits of hell
 
My walk can shake the deepest ocean,and conquer the invincible
 
My eyes shut the windows to my soul
 
My ears listen to the sound of joy and happiness around me
 
I am my own worst enemy
 
But when I take my mask off  
 
I am thrown aside the wayside,with forgotten identity 
 
Yes, I am the master masquerader in this fantasy
 
My masquerade is my protection from me.
