You tell me that you love me
And I should unmask myself
But I’m not sure if you are ready to see me ?
But if you are, here it goes
Me unmasked is the girl without makeup,
The girl who prefers jeans and T-shirts to dresses
Her hair pulled back in a pony- tail
Me unmasked is the one
With strong opinions and convictions,
Unmasked I am like a two-sided coin
When I love someone,
I love them as passionately as I can
I am loving everything about them,
Things which show intricate details
Like his smile yes his smile!
Which seems to stir in me,
The need for past hurts and long drawn out silences to be forgiven
The other side of the coin is when our love dies,
As I get tired of refueling the fire
That now dwindles to nothing but a spark,
Will you still love me then?
Will you fight to get back in?
Me unmasked is me forgetting about being perfect and totally in control ,
Me unmasked will be the unraveling of the sharades
That I have been playing at the wannabe extrovert
Trying to keep you hooked
Like them other girls telling you things you want to hear
Maybe then you’ll think I am a woman
Enough for you the one to take you places
Me unmasked is vulnerability, weakness and imperfection
The things that some men possibly shun at wanting nothing to do with
Because they’ve become more satisfied with the late night creeper
She’ll love them and leave them,
Me unmasked is the one who is willing to stay
When the mask you wear comes off tell me are you?
