The Mask (Hidden Secrets)

donned and in place, the mask
seemingly fragile, ready to crack
and shatter into a million pieces
revealing to all what lay beneath
~hidden secrets~
exposed and on display
darkness brought forth into the light
to be searched, rifled through
by grimy hands intent on finding
~dirty secrets~
to be strung out on a wire
soiled, flimsy undergarments
used as a ruse, a mere distraction
so the searchers can keep hidden
~their own secrets~
which cause them to wear a mask
seemingly fragile, ready to crack
the cycle never ends
