A mask Unworn

A Poem by Blue Misty Eyes

A mask of beauty lays upon the desk

For it has not yet been applied

Sat at the mirror the reflection is a blur

Tears cease on their departure


Told of only ones beauty

She is not that one

Hidden and forgotten

Keys longed for

Unlocking of the door is not so

the mask of beauty sits untouched

smudged and rained on


Beauty fades

from color to grey and white

Shattered is the mask

lays upon the floor

broken and  never worn
