My Sanctuary.

My Sanctuary.

He remembers as a kid,
when he used to wear a mask and roam around the neighbourhood
scaring people.
He remembers and he smiles at his ephemeral felicity,
because somehow, somewhere,
he wore the mask and never took it off.
It’s the world that scares him now and the mask his sanctuary.

-Saif.
