Mask - Poem by Min Sia

To my friend, Naru Kaede



A mask
Whatever it proclaims
Hides the very existence
But beyond the dying essence
Jailed beauty remains
Face's locked purity within
Suffocated by elemental chemicals
of the servants of the material world
Beholds the real lies
of the maternal world has endowed

Without a mask
An angel in disguise
A mysterious fairy of the old virgin valley
of the first nature's bloom.
Behind those eyes, a lady's spell
Waiting to be unleashed...
Waiting to be unveiled...
Your untouched face
The world's dying for a handful glance
To feel the realm of Naivette's gift

And here you are
Upon the fountain of spirits
Lovely face reflecting thee
My dearest friend of charm
Not be afraid of your journey
Don't revolve on the world,
Instead, let the world revolves on you
Don't play with their game
Instead, let them play with your game
My young lady of sweetest serenity...

My dearest friend Naru Kaede...

    A beautiful depiction of a young woman. I like these words and ideas of yours:

    Jailed beauty

    And here you are
    Upon the fountain of spirits.

    Mask or no mask a woman is still a mystery to be discovered and understood. (Report) Reply
