30 Day Poetry Challenge: Day 15 “Hiding Behind the Make up’

Flamenco Woman fine art dance oil painting

She tried to hide herself behind all of the pain and the hurt

Forgetting that she is still strong knowing her worth

Looking into the mirror at a different person that isn’t where she wants to be

Trying to imagine and visualize all her goals and dreams; to paint a path so that she can see

Hiding behind all that pain and the cries that’s still hidden deep inside

The make up she wears is now hidden in disguise

Who would ever know that she still hurts of all the situations and issues?

But at night when no one is looking, her pillow becomes her tissue

Still smiling  as she wears a mask to hide her true feelings

A smile that is put on with the make up, her real colors are only shielding

She looks into the mirror again and closes her eyes to exhale

Feeling like she is being trapped by an evil spell

But continuing her life’s journey, she doesn’t want to fail
