The Beautiful Blue Mask

September 7, 2012
The beautiful blue mask
Swirls and dances in the artificial light
With its long nose,
And its artful grace.

He made it.
And he loves it.
Wears it for Halloween,
Every year.

He should wear it in the ballroom.
And watch it swirl and dance
With its artful grace
Where it belongs.

It may never happen.
But I can still hope
That one day I will look at that beautiful blue mask,
My favorite color,
And smile a real smile.

I think that what you are trying to say here is that we should always be proud of our creations, whatever they may be, and accept them so they look great in our eyes. I think it is either that, or this may just relate to a your personal life and experiences. Either way, great job!
