Treasure Island

Virginia Cairns

(June 25,1993 / Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)

Beautifully Masked


You used to be
The one I cared for
The one I wanted

But you weren't who I thought you were
You were disguised
Cleverly as a knight in shining armor

Too bad your true self
Was finally revealed
Unmasked at last

Now when your mask is on
I see past your beauty
And the kindness you hide behind

Your charms and spells
No longer work on me
They are useless

I've finally overcome you
So take your mask and bag of tricks and lies
And leave my life!

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
