Behind the Mask
Clarice von Chimo
Behind the Mask is a book of uncomplicated poems exploring the events and thoughts that truly take place behind the scenes of life; as William Shakespeare best states “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.” Written simply and effortlessly, the subjects of love, death, and success are portrayed in honest ways each reader will relate to. The collection ends in an extended poem revealing how many hidden thoughts can stress a mind when the cement mask is finally peeled away.
Most enjoyable with relaxing music, warm blanket, a hot cup of tea and imagining several poems as lyrics from a simple heart.
