Putting on the Mask

Written by [pegasus1000]

She looks in the mirror
And sees a painted mask
Everyday she takes the time
To put this mask on

The eyeliner, the blush
The lipstick and especially
The cover-up.
A painted mask

It is the person she wants to be
Beautiful and happy
Perfect and strong
This is her mask

When she returns home
She washes her face and what
Remains are the cracks and imperfections
That go beyond her face

Scars that span a life time
That her heart wants to hide
So she smiles and laughs
Careful not to let the cover slip

This is her mask
She puts it on everyday
This is the woman
She wants to be.
