Masks -- A Poem

For one night

I can shed my skin

Embody someone else

Not who I’ve been

 

For one night

I can let down my walls

Trade them for masks

And fool them all

 

For one night

I can have a disguise

In the shape of a costume

To fool myself with my lies

 

For one night

I can live free

As someone else

Other than me

 

For the one night

On Halloween
