Will you know me in the morning? When rays of light kill the shadows we hide.
I place my mask upon the nightstand and face my daily fears with an exhausted look. We dance tiredly, the way we have for years. For my whole life.
I reluctantly twirl my partner and watch the shards of light reflect off his skin.
Paper thin like fake men. We begin again our tired spin. We twirl till we are one.
I place the mask back on and begin my life. Seconds of honesty to last a day.
