This mask I wear

Protects the heart

That hides behind

Itís lonely stare.


The eyes are empty

The head is full

Embittered memories

All so true.


This mouth is waiting

For your lips

Remove this mask

At your own risk

Oh the mask we all wear to protect us...  But, when the right love comes along, the mask slowly but surely disappears...  Great poem John, in your unique style..

John, We all wear mask to protect us...

This mouth is waiting

For your lips

Remove this mask

At your own risk


 But this says so much more lips waiting  at its own risk?? Love this thought process.
