Under the Mask

This girl has a mind of an inarticulate genius

She is both highly cunning and tedious

She hides her true self in translucent masks

In silent gleam, she proudly basks

She’s a vociferous mute, a realistic idealist

A blind doctor, liberally biased

For all that, she can hate with passionate love

A peaceful crow, a stormy dove

Her verdict: an innocent thief

Her ego brings only moral grief

Overprotective slacker, aware of her blindness

She wastes no time bestowing cruel kindness

Her hypocrisy rules her soul without a doubt

Her lies are more truthful than an anosmic’s snout

She’s a sober drunk, an insouciant perfectionist

From within the ethereal grimace, is a dark sophist

She’s a deceiving enemy disguised as a true friend

She’s a stable bipolar, believing that no one can amend

She fears overcrowded places and chandeliers

Narrow sighted people, dogmatic fakirs

Some might say she’s a contemplative fool

But she’s nothing but an over-used tool

I see this girl every morning and night

In my mirror, oh what a shameful sight!

Under the mask, it’s me I fear!

Dear God! Do you silently hear?
