Behind the Mask

"Our inner truth is the lie we construct to be able to live with the misery of our actual lives"
- Slavoj Zizek
“A charm invests a face
Imperfectly beheld,—
The lady dare not lift her veil
For fear it be dispelled.

But peers beyond her mesh,
And wishes, and denies,—
Lest interview annul a want
That image satisfies.”
― Emily Dickinson, "The Complete Poems"
