A Mask.


She wears a mask
Bright yellow sunshine smiles and laughter
Everyday
Tough girl who will never cry
As strong on the outside
As weak on the inside.


She is the master actress
Hiding bruises and cuts
Bitterness and regret
A beautiful mask of pretense
Smartly makeup-ed
Leaving nothing to be seen by the people of the world




A mask she proudly wears
Wont let anyone see through the act
Scared and lost though she will never show
Just a girl at the end of the day
In the hope that
Somewhere her soul is still alive



Close to sharing her soul with him
But stopped short, because
Wont ever reveal all of her to anyone ever
Not even while in that one pair of strong arms
He doesn't know, She keeps a secret
That there





In his arms
Her mask falls away.



~ Annie. 
P.S: For you.

Thanks :)

@Isha,
Something tells me you recognize who she is, don't you? :)

@Blunt Edges,
She sure is :)

And she tries as hard as she may,
calm and composed, pretending...
shying away yet drawn to him,
Never wanting to let him know

that she now has no mask.

@Shaunak,
Sigh.
I'm afraid that is exactly what is happening... sigh.

Could associate to "her" very well.
A lovely verse-of pain and love.

did the word "lovely" ever got defined so precisely as it wud if I use it to describe this post of urs??
especially loved the last stanza...it is so baring, makes the complexity of those emotions stand naked!!
