Masked


i see them putting up a facade
i see their fangs behind their smiles
their words can kill,
and stares can pierce.
they are there, everywhere,
in every walk of life.
hooded and dark
slipping in and out of shadows
they will intrude your mind
rape your thoughts
push you deeper into the dreary depths of nothingness
they will extract your everything
they will violate your very being.

I believe "they" are the experts everyone use when they are trying to make a point as in "they say" I have always been sure "they" are ghosts and goblins and now you have exposed them
