Lovers don’t know how to look
Whilst they are crossing paths.
Are you what you are showing
Or are masks coming in your way?
That is why I never wear faces
Because I don’t want to be someone else
Now that I know someone is looking for me
I want to be recognized for who I am.
There are many types of people
Crossing paths with me
And I don’t want to be around them
Who fall for pretty masks and fake smiles
People are so easily influenced
I am not sure if this is true
Because they don’t know what they want
Even if you tell them.
I love this one boy
I saw him in the streets
He was a mirror
All I could do was look,
And he looked back at me.
Honed version of an old poem, Suggestions; and inspired by Masks by Shel Silverstein.
