Hide behind smiles;

behind masks of teeth and shimmering eyes.

Pain etched around Irised eyes.

Corners of lips.

A slight trembling. As though awaiting true Love–

never known.

Suffering of the ages behind beauteous eyes.

Suffering caused by the absent, the unfledged.

Suffering caused by covetousness, one’s own faults.

All know suffering.

Masking cannot keep hidden eternally.

Who are we kidding, but ourselves?

Resentment explicit.

control and manipulation have nothing,

absolutely nothing to do with love.

Natasya, Maria tend toward self-destruction.

No longer hidden.

She cries for true Love’s embrace.
