Poem: She Puts on a Mask

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

She puts on a mask is about a woman who cannot stand to sit in the silence of the walls surrounding her with memories putting tears in her eyes. She grabs her keys and goes for a drive. She stops at a place where no one knows her name. She puts on her mask hiding her pain. Pretending she is fine.

She Puts On A Mask

It’s so hard for her to sit here
listening to silence
echoing from the walls,
yearning for a familiar voice
from not so long ago.

Remembering those moments
like they were yesterday,
wishing she could drift back in time
a teardrop silently falls,
convincing her to grab the keys.

A drive to the country side
in this cold brisk winter air,
taking her to a place
where no one knows her name,
she puts on a mask hiding her pain
pretending all is fine.
