Face

Face, instead of being mirror of the mind, hides the pain hidden deep inside.

Face

If
Face is the mirror
Of the mind,
That mirror has become
Opaque long ago.
It does not reflect anymore
Under layers of cosmetics.
Promises of eternal youth,
Botox,
Once expressive
Now does not show
Any emotions. 
Maybe it’s for the better
To hide the pain

Carried deep inside.
Pain of the extended hand,
Slapped away several time.
Face
Does not communicate
What’s in mind.
Deep beneath the layers
Of aged skin
And make up,
Hidden by a fixed smile,
Face has failed
Long ago
To mirror the
Pain in my mind.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
