The Haiku Challenge Day #4 ~ The Flip Side of Emotions



the tears of folly
fall as sorrow’s acid rain
laughter will dry them

 ~0~

valentine heartstrings
severed by enmity’s knife
acts of love restore

I love those masks. They remind me of that old Twilight Zone episode, where people wore Mardi Gras masks that showed their true personalities, and then they couldn't get them off!
