Everyday

I am defined by,
Those everyday,
Interactions.
They seep,
Into my,
Skin.
Leaves me,
Feeling branded,
Scarred.
People are,
Dancing in,
Masks.
On harlequin,
Invisible strings,
Tangled.
Knotted together,
Hanging limp,
Lifeless.

    Hi Louise - I was so glad to hear from again - I reckon we all feel branded in our own ways and most people do wear mask to hide the ugly - Very well written poem - E-mail any time - God Bless
