Two-faced – #WednesdayVerses

Who are you, I wonder,
The face I see each day
Or one you peel away;
I didn’t know the side,
One that you hid so well,
It was stuck so smooth,
I found it so hard to tell.

Edges fray, you forgot,
And continued to fake;
Till without a thought,
You made that mistake.
Off came that old mask,
I saw that hidden face,
But you denied it quick,
And put it back in place.

Once is enough for me,
That face I won’t forget,
On my guard from now,
No more hurt I will let.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

    • Yes. By itself, the word doesn’t really mean something, Shilpa. But when part of a comment that makes sense, it’s approvable I guess. Masks are tricky. Sometimes, it’s the true face that’s more vulnerable, more real, more “you”. And that face needs people nearby that it trusts. But when the mask reveals an angrier, spiteful true face, then it’s best to walk away from it.
