    A very pragmatic write, Geetha. Barring a few most of us are actually masking our sorrows and pains under our fabricated smiling face. But if we don't do that, we'd have been died much earlier under the pressure of sorrows.Hence this mask of smile is of immense value to keep us alive.... well done my dear. (Report) Reply

    a man who laughs all the time certainly has a hard heart which is really hard to break.. (Report) Reply

    When a reader starts thinking that this poem is written for me, the poet is certified to be great. As an insignificant reader I certify that you are a great poetess. (Report) Reply

    The first line seems incomplete.
    bridge of, (of what)
    If you want me to run through the second line in accordance with first, I am unable to fulfill the right tense.
    This poem is lovely. The parallels you draw about the caged bird and the joker in the circus are a bit cliche but they work wonderfully well over here. especially the one about the joker. I liked the poem a lot. Thank you (Report) Reply

    You have given me 2 wonderful gifts today Geetha. The 1st is this beautiful write I will save in my heart and on my site. The other gift were your words that truly touched my heart on my page on this new day at a time when my life has changed and I am fighting sadness BUT I know I can fight it and there are so many who are struggling more.
    Thank you so, so much Geetha and don't ever forget your MASK x (Report) Reply

    Be careful with the mask you wear
    Lest it gets stuck like second skin
    And the pain gets too much to bear
    But fight it out bare and you will win...

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
