Masquerade Poem by keith hendrickson


Rating: 4.4

left lonely happiness is now only a disguise
to mask away the pain that resides inside
like a thief in the night she stole my heart she stole my love she stole my pride
so now i fight with the pain
to regain the light in my life my sanity i must retain
get theese crazy feelings out of my heart and out of my brain
SO! ! !
there are no limits to the lengths that i will go
to accomplish the mental strength that i will need to move on and groww
time heals all wounds and this process is the slowest of slow
but short was the period of time i was able to call her mine
such a disgrace
and such a waste
but im ok dont you see the smile upon my face
not a speck of sadness for anyone to trace
but when i turn around
my head will once again sink to the ground
and next time you ask
i will again put on this dreadful dreadful mask

Very intriguing, in so many ways i could relate & the fact that you entitled it 'Masquerade' shows it's true mentality about how you felt. i truly love this poem.

This is a wonderfully worded piece and as you can tell from my poems, I too know what this is like. We all hide behind some kind of mask, it take great strength to overcome the need of having to have masks but greater strength to acknowledge that you need one. Great write! : o) Brandi <3

ooohhhh i loved this one! what i really enjoy about your writing is how it is a story. You think you know how it goes, but then it takes a twist and catches you off-guard, and then you step back and look at the larger picture, painted before you with such beautiful metaphors. Great poem!
