Reviews for Your Mask

This is an eloquent description of a common scenario, and I think you portrayed it beautifully. I took the 'bruises and cuts/that you can't reveal to us' as a sort of mention that not all pains are physical, which is something that I think people tend to forget. I found the last line beautiful, as well. 'Take off the mask and let me in.' A sort of ultimatum, if you will. The moment of truth. Thank you for writing this; it's made me think.

Way to write about such an issue that, unfortunately, happens all too often. It's sometimes difficult for people to open up with the problems they think no one will understand, let alone help. It is also pride that may keep some people from expressing hurt that they see as their shame. Just like the pride and fear of people who want to help but cannot find the courage to approach because they are afraid to be shut out and looked upon as aggressive or attacking. Another great poem :)
