Shattered Mask

Poetry By: MiyaviManson

One eventually has to realize...

He stares at the flawless porcelain
The love only he has, a hopeless wish
It has become a pleasure just to look at her
What else could a humane heart ask for?

Will he ever know?
The white mask has begun to crack
A voluntary act to make the pain last longer
The perfection in her face is breaking away

As the pieces shatter around
His pupils dilate to the sound of broken glass
The fog barely allows him to see
Everything he once refused to believe.
