Your Mask – A Poem and a Blitz of Gifs

Your Mask

*

*

Be it made of paper maché or plastic,

carved mahogany with a golden veneer,

or crystal clear quartz glass.

You wear one.

*

Morning, noon, and night;

removed only when sleep comes.

For what purpose does it serve your dreams?

*

*

Dead eyed stare, twisted grin, or a curious

smile that creeps ever upward hiding a secret

sin.

*

MaskMajora

*

*

Callous nature cloaked behind a beguiling

eye of the bluest blue.

*

A beauty called to recklessness,

a perfection that only Death will strive

to collect once due.

Know this.

All facades eventually decay and crumble.

Leaving you bare before everyone and yourself

as you stare into the mirror trying to

collect the pieces to a mask that no longer

fits.
