Masked Soul

I’ll tell you a story
Man is a fictional fable
A feel isn’t real
A touch is a tickle
A fickle expression

Tin foiled stars
Try to shine
A galaxy of lies
Get too close
We burn you
Fiery fallout of our folly

We play pretend
We send mixed messages
An ambiguous full moon
Shines silver
Yet, so shallow and dark
Actions speak loud

Ears are deaf
What we say and do
Doesn’t mean a damn thing
When an iridescent soul
Wears a mask…
