Double-Sided Mask

Poetry By: Lesley Annette 253

well, theres always that one person that we knew before that turned to the "popular" crowd. whatever. i see them now and remember who they once were, and now i see what they've become: a stupid fake and a cruel cold bitch.

You stand there
Talking loud and
Standing proud,
Grinning ear to ear,
Not once do I approach
Without the same fear
Never do my eyes
Deceive me of your
Disguise, so fake, it
Can't be mesmerized
As I walk past, you
Smile and greet me,
Nodding in fake acceptance
Eyes burning, I feel their
Stares and hear your voice
Combining, and sadly I am hardly minding,
Though it makes me itch with self-pity
Grinding my teeth, I remember
You as you were before,
So kind and forgiving,
So completely frail,
Then I'm reminded of the swiftness of
Your cruel betrayal
You've always had a mask,
Something to hide yourself behind,
But never did I think,
It had more than one side.
