MasksHow many masks do you have?
I have so many I've lost count.
I must have one for everyone I've met, and then some.
A mask of obedience,
a mask of honesty,
a mask of contempt,
a mask of annoyance,

Maria opened her eyes. Another one of those dreams, she thought. The longest dream streak I've had so far. Snatching a notebook off her nightstand, she quickly scribbled down all the details of the dream she could remember, sketching out the buildings, writing as much of the dialogue as she could remember.

FallingIt was swelling up inside of me,
reaching out to engulf me in its infinite darkness.
It was enveloping me,
swallowing me up.
I was falling
into the darkness within me.
As I fell farther and farther,
despair rose up,
and I desperately reached for the light,
my small prick of hope,
but as I fell farther and farther
down into the darkness it became
