masque manqué

it’s no good any more,
that mask you wore
to cloak the darkling heart.
it’s slipped too many times
and shown too much
of what lives within
that is the real you.
i can suffer many things
but not deceit.
i trample on your mask
as i step out the door.

    Trample on it…but then forgive, not for its sake, but to entirely free yourself. Great image!

  • Many thanks, Joe, oh the layers! LOL

    Wonderful artwork, wonderful verse! I have always been fascinated by the “masks” we wear… and I’m sure we all do wear one now and then, in life. As always, very thought provoking! love it

  • I appreciate your extravagantly kind feedback, Nadya, thank you.
