Mask to Mask

mask to mask
hidden from view
our deepest thoughts
personal feelings

mask to mask
we interact
longing to be seen
fearing potentials

mask to mask
are we hiding
are we selective
are we insincere

mask to mask
our actions
our values
our destiny

Edward Ebbs

I have not written anything for a long time.  Like most of us, we have siblings and we have parents. My parents passed not too long ago, but the hurt came from siblings, embarrassed, what I thought was, was not.  Heartfully hurt, I have lost the ability to write a poem.  The energy, those little voices that would help with words are silent...lonely in some ways...lost a part of me.

my heart goes out to you Edward as I too suffered such issues when my father died and I found out some harsh home truths about how truly mercenary my sister is - no contact now since we were in the lawyers in Nov 2015 - so she could inherit over me and mum:-( the only thing I feel for her is pity. thankfully I didn't lose my muse as starting to write poetry in 2013 has helped me through the worst 5 years of my life.
