Come along on a magic roller coaster ride through my mind...
It'll be fun, I promise.
From perdition I emerge
Wearing a painted grin
Grinding my teeth
Scales of fabrication
Protecting raw bones
My delusion complete
In place of me
There is no me
Yet I’m all you see
It reminds me - in the most complimentary way, you understand - of the Joker. Not the Cesar Romero, cartoonish one - the one I think of as the "real" Joker - totally unhinged, but honed to raw, razor-sharpness.
I have to agree with Heather here.
Such passion emerges here. whoa. Thank you for your post. oxo
I've heard similar thoughts from celebrities. People who think that they put on a mask for the public and in the end all they are is the mask they created. In my time I've been accused of wearing different masks for different people. I think it is something you have to do in order to navigate the world. That said, this is a clear warning to not 'believe the hype' and fall for the stories you tell others about yourself.Very Archetypical in the best ways.
