The Magician

You wear your mask so perfectly,
no one would ever guess,
underneath that false facade
lies a life that you have wrecked

So gentle and engaging
to the unsuspecting eye,
this act of patient kindness
covers up your many lies

Master of illusion,
of deceitful, dirty tricks,
a hidden streak of malice,
violence is your fix

No bone too tough to break through,
no skin too soft to bruise,
you strike each blow so swiftly
with an ever-shortening fuse

You wear your mask so perfectly
but it hides the truth no longer,
a monster lurks behind that smile
but time will make me stronger.
