My Glass Mask

I wear a mask of glass
My life is a mask
A perfect snowy blossom
That lay's unnoticed on the ocean
It is as serene as the snow
a raindrop on Water
My crescent eyes
have seen to much
an ache
as deep
and as wide as the sea
Threatens to drown my heart
My eyes search the stars and
I wonder
Could I fly to heaven?
Could I climb the mightiest tree?
the Sea glows
a poisonous green
I try to climb the mightiest tree
Only GOD can help me!
My night hair whips
My broken cry is heard
For miles!
My arms feel like
I have fell from the sky
When I realize, I have
I see the stardust
the color of the sea!
His voice is
calling me like a
million tiny silver grasshoppers
I hit the ground!
Arrows of pain
Shatter my mask of glass
My lips feel like broken grapes
My eyes bleed
water from the sea
As the pain sets
I realize
The mask was not
my life
but me, hiding myself
from the world!

The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by my dad leaving when I was five years old. I was a very shy depressed girl for a long time. It took me a long time to figure out that my dad's mistakes were not mine and I didn't have to dwell on them, I could get along with my life happily and have fun.
