I'm on the brink of telling all
I've lived my life in a masquerade ball
Covering my face behind a mask
In this buoyant music, i bask

A whirlwind takes me for a spin
Across the incandescent floor of vitality
Lay myself in its compassion
Holding me together with its warmth

My mind is filled with devotion
To the ones who show me emotion
For they are the ones who are real
Riches of the seaway, for them, i'd steal

Touch me with the resolution to kill
And i will be strong with indulgence
I've been to the end and back
I've seen it all and i've seen nothing

I've believed in miracles, this i won't deny
They gave me vigor, and made me try
Now the mask has been removed from my face
And i dance this dance, in love's embrace

 "It's my heart that pounds beneath my flesh
it's my mouth that pushes out this breath..."-FTE

Isn't it a great thing when someone removes that mask and you learn to love and trust them?  Beautiful work, and very well done.  Keep it up!

~*Like a lion, without fear of the howling pack,
Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha
