Masks

Masks

midnight
they tap us
on the shoulder
bring nightmares
to our sleep

dead warriors
they rise
from battlefield mists
grave their faces
hollow their eyes
seeing nothing
open mouths
flapping soundless

they keep life at bay
forcing us to move away
from what we know
to face life
unmasked
in an unfamiliar way
