"You are but a silhouette, confronting your own masks" ~Deema

true.. 'you are' refers to deema, and her clearly showing silhouette is confronting the masks in the cabinet :) "if it is thru ur lens"

and for oscar wilde.. there is some truth to that, i guess.. but only relevant to talking about the shamefull and the weak sides of his! i guess MAN refers to humans.. right? ;) don't tell me doesn't apply here? :P

The phrase looks so literate, i don't like exaggurated metaphors ;)

but my own masks is my invesion here :)

and yes this is me wearing my navy dress :)

for Oscar Wilde, if you did what is shameful, that means something towards other people, so no matter how thick and misterious your mask could be you will be always identified, so wearing a mask is only valid when you talk about your own own self either, so when it is shameful without anybody involoved :)

and as for the MAN, well MEN are the ones who invented the word prestige, don't you agree with me Mr.Simper ;)
