Broken Mask

Broken Mask

A Poem by Rhea752

I hate putting on  
This accursed mask 
That wears a smile 
Every day 
Hate pretending 
That I'm not crying 
Underneath 
Hate how nobody sees 
The real me 
I hate lying 
To myself 
And my family 
Hate feeling 
Like I'm nothing 
Hate this broken mask 
For not fixing everything 
I hate me 
For willingly wearing 
This thing 
For not taking it off
And setting myself free

This is pretty much me everyday. I connected to this instantly. I love it. I hate putting on the mask too. Although, sometimes I really want to, but I can't and I fail at it...anyway, I love this poem.

Great write! I like the short, choppy lines... And I don't know if you meant to do this or not, but I like the lack of any sort of punctuation... I was reading it as if the narrator was saying this all in one frantic breath, and at the end there was a gasp for air.

Perfectly worded. It had a good up and down rhythm for me when i read it.

Dark, haunting, relatable, and very well written. I'm not a fan of masks but wear them all the same. Great job, this is amazing.
