The Mask

You wore a mask.
Reveal yourself.
I'm not going to ask.
Angel - ha!
That's what I saw.
On the outside.
Inside- you're black.
Full of lies.
Stupid guys.
Lots like you.
Different - not you.
You lost - I won.
But I had to be the one - to run.
Will I take a gun,
And shoot - what?
No need,
You tore my gut.
You scared my heart.
Apart- yup- apart.
You wore a mask.
Yes- you fooled me.
