Masked One

She hides her face every day,

with a  mask with wings,

it covers her right eye,

and covers her soul as well,

She cannot face the world,

it scares and frightens her,

it is her wish that it did not,

but she cannot shake the feeling,

The masked one,

only comes out at night,

because the light burns,

it is too bright, it is too bright,

Sometimes she will go to masquerades,

but she stays away from others,

and hides,

the masked one is always careful,

Her face is always covered,

but that is who she is,

she is the masked one,

the one afraid.
