This is dedicated to a very good friend. I hope you like it.

I ask and I ask

Why I can't take off my monotone mask,

to cry and to laugh.

They are only diastant memories of the past,

before I put on my monotone mask.

I thought it would help,

I thought I'd be cured.

When instead,

now I'm dead,

and nothing but mourned.

just to let the reader know, she is not dead, I wrote this to dissuade her from doing so.

yes, you know it was wrote for you. I'm really glad that you liked it. Remind me next to I talk to you, to read you my 2-and-a-half long saga of a poem. It started out after a fight with a friend then I couldn't get out of the out of the writing mood, and it gets reall deeep.
