Untitled (the best are)



I wish my life had a mask
It would be a smiling mask

That way i can hide everything

My loneliness

My sins-
My tears.

I would hide my failures

I would hide all the hurt

I would hide everything
I wish my life had a mask

It would be a smiling mask
.

There are many days I am actually wearing my mask.
Cause underneath I am broken.

*The smiling mask is the best kind of mask to have.

My life is a mask. i hide in it all day. Then when i get back home, in my bed, only then do i take it off. and only then do the tears start coming down, the smiles, the loneliness, the nager, the anxiety...

Its not nice to hide everything....

If you hide your smile, how would I know if your happy or not.

If you hide your tears, how would I know that I made you sad.

If you hide your fears, how would I know what you are afraid of.....

YOU SEE, I NEED TO KNOW...so dont hide!

Nobody wins with quiting. You can't live your life fully behind a mask; smiling or crying mask. Face the world in your true self and throw your gauntlet at it.

I once wrote a poem with the mask theme...

We wear lots of masks, each one for different times... I wonder what would happen if we acted like we really wanted to all the time! Here's a secret, I masquerade as Poeticallytinted... I am actually cooler than she'll ever be... ;) ;)

now where's that mask of mine...

Forgot to mention... I love the way your mind works. :D

Poetry in the Global Box said...

We paint ourselves many colors -- reflecting what the world wants or expects us to be. I love your mask analogy. This is beautiful.

Regina said...

Nice poem.
In life most of the people we encounter are wearing a mask, some where layers of masks...

SilverBow said...

its tempting, this masked life thingy. but i doubt it would work for me;it would burst out from the intensity of the emotions sometimes.

i dont like the mask ideology; especially since it doesnt touch on the inside.
