Words do matter.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent
about things that matter~ martin luther king
Words heal..
Words reassure..
Words express...

#18 The mask

Let me be hidden beneath this veil
Let this long dark silence prevail
I was inefficient, coward and fool
Should have chosen silence over falsehood

The mask empowered me with strength
Bold, loud, unafraid, here I stand
Let me convey what never was said
Away from world, here I bled

I must say what’s held within
I might lose the courage later
I resemble magnum opus of flaws
Withheld in my own deed’s claws

For all the imperfections beheld in me
There ain’t a thing thou haven’t seen

I had slit their wings, tied their feet
Caged in layers, drowned deep somewhere
The dreams were cruel and insane
You and me together, few wishes in vain

I don’t need a constant reassurance for you to be mine
I don’t need another life of little more time
All I need is you to stay at a distance
For I can see you, admire you, making memories of the stance

A/N- This isn't a random verse. But related to a girl, referring to the incident mentioned in the story 'Maybe'.
