Mask



le jardin by max ernst

river flowing
through
thoughts 
that mean nothing
to you

you claim to know me
but you don't

i hide myself from you
its a game i play
to see how wrong you can get it

my face is a mask
which one day i will let crack
then you will recoil from the truth
laid bare.


The picture prompt is from Tess at The Mag, go and read the other poets work.

  1. This is rather sad as everyone
    has a mask at some point of
    time. This would be good to
    link up with Real Toads as
    they have a mask prompt.

  2. I like your take on the prompt. The woman hiding her face. I hadn't seen the picture like this before.
