Description: I cudnt fit my entire poem because i had submitted this on my phone and there is a certain limit...i had to improvise..anyways hope u like it!!
unspoken words -------------------------------------------
If i can show you how i turly feel every time u walk by..it would mean taking off my mask..and im afraid i cant do that..taking off my mask means throwing awayall the hours..the days i have spent pretending i wasnt hurt..deceiving all those who cared..taking off my mask would mean tellling everyone that i have never stopped loving you..taking off my mask would mean that i lied to everyone who asked me if i was ok...i dont want just anyone to see me without my mask..i want u to look in particular..look under my mask..see that i have suffered..see that i still need you..realize that i love you to much to forget u overnight..seee that i will never stop dreaming of the day that u will be mine..that i will b urs...if i can express myself as freely as i could now in front of u i would..but these words will forever remain unspoken.. =,(
Wow I can tell this cam stright from your heart I enjoyed this alot. however if you were to get onto Elite from a computer and edited this i think it'd make a world of difference. I can relate to the "mask" you speak of I also walk around in this world with a constant mask on.
thanks for posting keep up the great writes
This had to be hard to do over a phone. Texting is a [censored].
I love anything with a mask concept to it. All people wear masks, whether they're removable anymore or not... and I really like it when that is recognized by others in poems/stories. There is an old Twilight Zone (I think it was) where the family of a dying rich man has to wear ugly masks until midnight, when the man dies after telling them how ugly their personal characteristics are, and once he's dead, the masks have become their actual faces.
I guess the point of that story is reversed to this. Masks are a defense, as much as an affront. But regardless, some people have several. Nice write, much enjoyed.
