You try to fit wear the same mask that everyone else seems to be wearing around you, because everyone is so fake...but in the end your realize it's all a waste of time and you're better off on your own... Isolating yourself from everyone.

Stranded/ Nynaeve

One final solution
To end the illusion
Total isolation
It's all a mere deception.

A masquerade ball
Faces so dull
A deep ached sensation
Their hypocrite creation.

My grieving's coronation
My late night divination
After all the dedication
It's all a degradation.

My haven I will reach
It's all a tear away
Ascending into slumber
I take away the shame.

  You never cease to amaze me - with English being your second language, you have a far better grasp of visionary words than I do, and I was born here, and call myself a writer!

Great job - The only thing I would say is that your rhythm falters a bit at the end because you're no longer rhyming by the last verse. However this also works as a fantastic play into the meaning of the poem.

Keep writing! One day, I'll quote you (with your permission, of course) in one of my novels!

  Do you know what I like best about this?

In the final verse there is a possible double meaning in the word tear - as in ripping or crying.

I don't know whether this was intentional or not, but to me it made a deliciously visual dichotomy of the two possible options, which both fitted the poem perfectly.
