Unmasking Masks

She walked in silently
Her white gown
sashaying to the soft music.
Heads turned, voices exclaimed,
Tall glasses clinked;
The 'Ice Princess' had arrived.

Could this be her?
Without her singing voice
And her lovely smile?
A sculpture of poise and stature
But of life devoid?

'Twas the day to be different -
When Hitlers sang with Jews
And Cleo giggled with Octavius;
The Fancy Dress Ball
To make a fool of y'all!

The party was a hit
but for her ringing laughter
And exuberant banter.
They longed her to rid that mask
And just talk as they did ask.

She stared at the expectant eyes
And smiled a deep smile
Would they ever know
That the girl they longed to see
Was the one with the mask?
