Faded mask

Faded mask

A Poem by Emily Dickinson Jr.

a poem about wearing a mask so long that you can scarcely tell what is the true you and what is a persona anymore. PLZ Read







The world can't see my pain

It's behind a wall of porcelein








A wall so solid and close to reality


The lines of my and her wants blend

The lines fade and the mask

Melts into my reality


On my face, on my world


The me that's really me is hidden

But it’s been so long, so long

I can't tell


I'll smile if she ever really comes back

But my hopes for that


Are stark, dark, Black

I can relate to the poem, our true faces are hidden behind some pretty mask, we can see the monsters inside us, but they can't....anyway great poem, well done
