Great graphic! <3
Thanks. I found it on Tumblr. It inspired me to write the poem.
I think the poem would be more powerful if he didn't wear a mask for her, but that in spite of his grotesque features she still saw beauty.
He doesn't wear a physical mask but hides his true self. She see his face but not the true man beneath.
That's what I meant. If she could see the true man and still see beauty, wouldn't that be more powerful. We all feel like we must wear a "mask" at certain times because we don't think our true self will be acceptable. But oh, how wonderful it is when we can show our scars, our dark secrets, yet still be loved.
I'd be afraid to walk outside without my mask. People want to see the fake smiles and silly laughs. I do gravitate to more serious people. These are the kinds of people who allow me to feel comfortable without my mask.
You use great poems in your tweets and blog posts. Do you write poetry yourself? Seems like you have a knack for it!
I never thought of writing at all until about 10 years ago. I was never happy with the plots and ending of books. I decided to write on of my own. It is much different than all my training in Finance but much more rewarding. Poetry I began to dabble with for the ads for my book. It seems that readers like my poetry better than my prose. It flows out of me easier. If I continue with it, I would need some training. Thanks.
Thank you so much.
Captivating and vivid.
Thank you. The picture made me do it.
Nice picture, very inspiring for a horror lover like me!
