Masked Goddess

I am the goddess of theatre

I’ve perfected the art of acting

Memorized every line

Word for word

I can be any character I want on a whim

I am able to change masks in the blink of an eye

Moving so fast you’ll never see my face

I am the perfect actress

Almost

I’m still unable to fool myself

When I look in the mirror

Unmasked 

My soul naked only to myself

Skin raw and wounded 

Untouched by any

No costume or mask or any amount makeup 

Could ever disguise this pain from my eyes

So I hurry back on stage

Willing myself to become the characters I portray

But then, I guess

Even I am not such a perfect an actress
