What lies behind the porcelain face?
So pale in beauty,
So fair in grace.

What means the painted tears of red?
A true love lost?
Or hurt long bred?

What caused the smile of rosy lips?
A stolen kiss?
Or a tender glimpse?

What shaped the curve of silken cheek
An Italian hand?
Or a peasant meek?

What secrets fill the empty eyes?
A startling truth?
Or a subtle lie?

Behind the mask what will I find?
A face grotesque?
Or beauty undefined?
Inspired by porcelain masks and the personalities we hide behind them.

Absolutely beautiful. It reminds me of the one I love, actually.
