This is sort of a non-rhyming poem, but I tried to make it flow nicly nonetheless.

The sweet child I once knew is no more.

He was consumed by the Mask of Lies.

You think he is still the same,

but only I can see through his disguise.

Don't you see what he's trying to do?

I've tried to help him find himself,

but every time I've failed.

It's too late to save him now.

I close my eyes and turn away,

as the Masked Child makes his next move.

Can't you see what he's doing?

You say he's helping,

but behind your back he's plotting.

I know it's me he's after.

What have I done to anger him so?

He's not the person I used to know.

He hides his true self behind the Mask of Lies.

He hurts me...

He frames me...

He pushes me away...

I try to tell you what really going on,

but you ignore my warnings,

and listen to anything he has to say.

You think he's perfect--but I know the truth.

I see who he really is when we're alone.

I try to help you open your eyes,

But you're already under his spell.

He's got you fooled.

I close my eyes and turn away,

as the Masked Child makes his next move.

Can't you see what he's doing?

You say he's just helping,

but behind your back he's plotting.

I know it's me he's after.

What have I done to anger him so?

He's not the person I used to know.

He hides his true self behind the Mask of Lies.

I am only safe from his wrath,

when you are around.

But once you're gone, there's no stopping him.

I've tried to show you who he really is,

but all you can see is the Mask.

He only removes it when it's just me and him...

Don't you see what he's doing...?

He's tearing us apart!
