Poetry: Fallacy

A few years ago I did a  poetry writing course on WordPress. Each day for two weeks we were given a word which we would use to create a poem. The following poem was inspired by the prompt “fallacy” but I think it ties in with the mask theme.

I ‘m seeing from your Facebook page

That life is fine and grand.

He’s taking you to ski in Banff

And then to Disneyland.

And what a gorgeous diamond

He gave you just last year.

But what’s that I see in your eye?

Oh, could it be  tear?

It seems your life’s not perfect

Though you live it with such grace.

But what we see on Facebook

Is not what’s on  your face.
