    We wear the mask that grins and lies, It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,; This debt we pay to human guile; With torn and bleeding hearts we smile, And mouth with myriad subtleties. (Excerpt from "We Wear the Mask" by Paul Laurence Dunbar) Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. "'Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door; Only this, and nothing more." (Excerpt from "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe)

    I think, because on the first poem, the author uses the mask to explain that they hide their feelings with a metaphoric mask. In the second one, the author explains the way he felt the night when someone knocked at the door
