Masks (A Poem By Eve Barton)

(A Poem by Eve Barton)


Wanting to go beyond the mask longer . . To marvel at the fibers beneath the paint


Gleaming eyes search for signs we are stronger . . . With Time, our past selves begin to grow faint


Glimpsing in the mirror at the images we ask .  . . Is it the same with most fellows?


Looking beyond the shadows in the crevices of the mask . . . Loving as each heart mellows
