Masks

a poem by Prisha Zephan

Masks,
An illusion
A mirage
A hallucination of the real self
A phantasm of a combination of keys
A vision of several man-made rules
A spectre of judgement
An apparition of reflecting stones of hurdles
An imitation of feelings
A delusion of one’s self
A deception of secrets
A semblance of defiance
The pretence of a soul
My best friend
