Prompt 112: Mask

Thanks to Dreams are my Reality for this week's post, mask.


We each wear such an invisible mask
To hide the true self, disguise the real thing
Some good, some pretty, some ugly, we bask

Behind the smiles hides she in angst
Yet projects herself a cheerful, happy being
We each wear such an invisible mask

She talks so bubbly, keeping all aghast
Yet conceals in her shell her mood upswing
Some good, some pretty, some ugly, we bask

She pretends to do a happy task
Yet sulking at work, eager in fleeing
We each wear such an invisible mask

She talks of romance and love that last
Yet bereft of love in act that is contrasting
Some good, some pretty, some ugly, we bask

She acts so strong, brave in such vast
Yet deep inside, vulnerable timid thing
We each wear such an invisible mask
Some good, some pretty, some ugly, we bask

Some notes on this post:

This is my 26th week at One Single Impression, hosted by Andree of Meeyauw and Sandy Carlson of Writing in Faith. Wheww....what an accomplishment...! Thanks to Leo of Symphony for ushering me here...:))

Thanks to the hosts, too, for considering one of my prompt suggestions. This week's prompt (Mask) is mine. I wish a great participation from all OSI writers. And I wish to be here for as long as nothing would hinder me.

Have a great day everyone!
