The masks we wear
To muffle the lives we bear
Can get stifling at times.
We want to scream
We need to shout
For we feel no one cares about
Our lives or the humanity around us.
We shuffle through
Our lives untrue
To our own wants, needs, and desires
Wanting to stoke some fires
Of passion or passionate times
To wake up another person
Shake them from their mediocrity
Shake us from ours as well
To leave our self-created lives in Hell
To find comfort in their eyes and face
Or entwined within a long embrace.
