The Mistress - Poem by Chyna Parker

She hides behind the mask,
Her duties to a man not her own,
A pitiful, corrupt task,
To which society will disown.

Even with a face of beauty,
Hidden; for the shame is great,
The man was her only duty
Banished with her whorish fate.

The mistress is unknown,
By the man that uses her most,
A mask is only shown,
For sins we do not boast

    hmm.. Interesting poem. especially the Whorish fate part of it..
    I think you pick your fate.. Life is all about choices.
    The mistress is unknown, by the man that uses her most, a mask that is only shown, For sins we do not boast
    I could only imagine what this means.. Then again.. only the writer can interpret that.
    Interesting write. (Report) Reply
