The Mask - Lyrical Sunday

the mask 

edges fracture
smiles splinter
wires cross
barriers built
pain becomes friend
friends pass away
into the fog
lies hide truth
truth lies... still
faking, pretending
heart breaks
tears fall 
smiles smothered
a voice whispers
attempts to save
all unheard 
all unknown
unseen behind the mask


  1. Reading this felt like drinking a fine wine on a dark day; such evocative magic you weave with your words - yet such sorrow I saw in them.

  2. My poem x

  3. I love how you went without full stops and commas to break up the lines. It make it feel raw and flows from start to finish.

  4. The depth of these words draw me in. Very powerful.


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I try to reply to as many as I can either here or by email. <3 LJx
