masked crusade

By: Shelbi Henny

Unbelievable to know
the full story behind the mask 
a crusade brewing in the mist
of heron's demise
we wish upon frantic stars
and I see cracks in the plastic paint
that tells the real character
I already fell for 
longing to kiss the lips of this fictitious
demeanor that I've never seen 
to caress the cheeks 
of a distant dream
imagining the closeness that dwindles
in fantasies
and sips all the air out of me
yearning to know this fable creature
that never existed 
just enchanted the inner core
and ripped my heart in a new form
this seemed overwhelming 
to release this fascination 
but I wish that it was real
even though I can never get past the mask
