Hiding in plain sight,

I am more myself as someone else.

Will you take the bait?

To steal hearts I patiently wait.

Hoping to be everything you want,

Nothing more, nothing less,

I’ve got your dreams carved in different masks.

In return your approval is all I ask.

Fans of the charade,

Don’t seem to care what’s inside.

And those who don’t buy it,

I carefully cast aside.

As careful as I am, you should know

These masks are made of glass.

One gentle touch of affection,

And they seem to shatter apart.

    Maybe he saw the character’s real face through the translucent glass and moved away..
    Or saw his reflection on the opaque glass mask, understood himself and whiled away.
