Time to bathe

Time to dress

To the masquerade

with bated breath!


Their words like knives

will pierce our hearts,

I’ve heard that before,

in whole or in part?


With fierce loathe and disgust

we torment those we hate;

Then peer in a mirror to see

we’ve written our own fate.


Love is professed between

lovers each day’

The masquerade continues,

users seeking new lays.


Round and around the


‘Til the masks fall off;

In death we fall down.
