The Mask

A coat for the rain
Pills for the pain
Breaths for the stress

A mask for the day ahead
Amongst the living
Despite the dead

    She had blue skin,
    And so did he.
    He kept it hid
    And so did she.
    They searched for blue
    Their whole life through,
    Then passed right by-
    And never knew. ( Shel Silverstein) 🙂

  4. Some days we do just give the blanks there due, never knowing we actually left the house. Nice write.
