Oh Cheshire Cat ~Shape Poem~ by QuiteQuiescent Oh Cheshire Cat ~Shape Poem~ by QuiteQuiescent
In creative writing we had to create a shape poem and I did the cheshire cat face. However the eyes are basically a completely different entity content wise compared to the smile but for my teacher's sake, it's together. It's alittle difficult to read so I'll post it here, also the pupils are supposed to be repeated with each line when reading left to right

Lies mask truth
Smiles mask pain
Shine mask darkness
Humility mask motives
Eyes mask thoughts
Outside mask inside
Kindness mask hate
Colors mask depth

Words show thought
Eyes show desires
Tears show emotion
Action show character
Silence show trust
Art show freedom
Smiles show warmth
Dreams show hope

Oh Cheshire cat,
Tell me how
All you need
Are eyes and a smile
There lies
Deception and depth
Behind shine and colors
And words and dreams
Tell me cat,
How your smile reveals your madness
How your eyes mask 
The mystery that you are
Because a face can do so much
Like how outside covers
Aren't at all what you expect
Like how silence tells you everything you need to know
All you need is a face
But a face can mean so much
Tell me Cheshire Cat
How do you use yours?

Cool, I love when people make pictures out of words, it really "says" a lot about the image.

Thank-you and yeah I think it adds more weight to the actual words.

Yeah cause it adds depth to the words and gives you something to look at, so while you're looking you start to read the words and feel what it's telling you.
-Deep art stuff.
