The Sun's Mask

The Sun's Mask

A Poem by Shaun

I stare out the window
And into the sun
And wait for my eyes
To go numb
Then I'll look to my hand
It's blurred and unclear
The guilt is masked
No pain
No fear

Well done as the reviewers before me said the thematic thing is though through and good for a debate. We all use masks. The narrator chooses the mast that can't see the guilt which leads to no pain and that to no fear, but the again with mask we choose the risk, our position and our hunter...

I liked this. Using the sun to blind the narrator's eyes to the guilt which he/she feels upon their hands . . . made me think of bloodshed, but really it could be anything, couldn't it? A very interesting concept, good job.

Hiding guilt by using the light of the sun... makes me think... what shall happen when the sun sets?
Will the guilt, the pain, and the fear return? An interesting write... It seems to have an internal understanding :) Ponderous ink! :D
