The Path of Blood

"Are you embarking on the path of blood?"
"Indeed…if that is my destiny."

If you hide behind a mask
The amount of reasons to justify why
Stretch on as infinitely as the sky
It's always the same
You're just playing a familiar game
Whether you actually hide your face
Or just erase the very last trace
Of the man you once were
In your bloody wake, tragedy will occur

This is short, but its deep and it says alot. Everyone is deceptive in their own way. People put on masks to hide a past self, and they try to hide it and erase the past, what they used to be. However the past can never leave you, and you were before will always follow you, you can;t leave it behind. This is very good. It flows nicely and has an excellent rhythm. Great job.

This was an amazing poem, what was you inspiration for this piece, the quote perhaps? "Stretch on as infinitely as the sky " this is my favorite line because the sky does stretch to infinity. My only suggestion is to check punctuation and maybe add on because it was lovely :)

Oooh this was good, had a really good rhythm to it and everything. Just curious though, is there a first line missing or is that just how you wrote it. Asking cos it just seems a little uneven... but overall, really good.

I'm curious about the quote at the beginning of your more recent works. Are they there to make the reader think, or what you had in mind when you were writing the piece of prose? Anyway, this had a nice flow to it, though it was short (short things have just as much of an impact as longer pieces). It reminds me of your other poem "The Mask of Nothingness." Is this a separate poem or an extension, or even a part of a collection? Either way, I still like them. Talk to you later.
