Protection

There’s a fragile mask on my face
Tears behind the laughter
Sadness in the back of my smile
My love for you for each frown

I’ve only known you for a while
A while however, felt like a lifetime

I want to avoid you
Stay away and rebuild my walls
But this protection is thin
It broke down the moment you say it will.

    Ah, the masks we all wear to keep people out.

    It’s often harder to remove than a well shot arrow from Robin Hood at a tree in Sherwood Forest.
