This was inspired by Sheryl’s Daily Word Prompt. Todays word is Masquerade.

It was also inspired by Martha Shaw’s post, The Lost. I reblogged it and encourage a visit to the post and her love full blog.

To participate or view other posts on the Daily Word here is the link:



a kind of double entendre,

anonymity’s humor,


phantoms that project

hidden desires,

masquerading intention,

playing with fire


the costumes you wear,

are they your own?

who are you without the mask?

a masked other?


would you dare to look behind the face,

layer by layer,

and peel off the mask?


expression is hallow,

your inheritance,

a dance with grace,

uncovered, manifest
