Mask

English: Nō mask

 

He held a mask to his face.
Acting ‘normal’ so it would fit, to leave to space.

No gaps to let himself seep through.

Frowns drowned in stapled smiles.

He searched to find himself, but his reflection showed only the mask he held.

You can’t hope to find yourself, from eyes that build someone else.
