Without the Masks...A lot has to be said
For the dishonesty of flesh
And the truth in cold glass sequins
For it is not the mask that lies,
It is the face that changes.
But what is to happen when the ribbons fray,
The porcelain cracks
And all of your flaws are for all to see?
Will you embrace them?
Then braver you are,
To show that you love yourself nonetheless,
Even when the shock on the faces around you
Proves the unwillingness
To face the light.
Letting LooseOn fragile dreams you tread,
Replacing hopes with bitter dread.
Afraid to speak,
You eviscerate the weak.
I'm not so brave, I think,
Holding out open hands to those invisible,
But I'm not so cruel;
It's your card of Fate to play:
With a sword, you take lives
In a world of the fittest to survive;
But with a pen I take no prisoners,
Keeping the meek,
For The Curvy Girls~I have to say
Freddie Mercury had it right
And I all I want to do is take you home tonight.
Forget the girls you see in the tabloids, baby;
And you're drivin' me crazy.
Look at those legs, sweetheart,
Try to tell me you aren't amazing;
Good God, you're drivin' me crazy.
No thanks, I'm thirsty;
Give me a D-Cup!
You're perfect, you know that;
Forgetting the Little Things....... It is often times
How loneliness feels
Fading sensations of Sadness,
By the dead feeling of empty space,
Only enough room for fragmented ghosts of CONTEMPLATION.
To be forgotten minutely
in the presence of a loved one,
And then to be recalled unforgivingly
in the absence of confidence.
