Painted Face

Painted Face

A Poem by Sincerely Yours

Lets get down

To the heart

Of the matter


Fear takes grip

And constricts

Can’t breathe can’t speak


Conformed and precise

Dare me to laugh

Keep me from holding back


Don’t know this

Person in the mirror

With her painted face


This all just a show

For others to see

Afraid to show the real me


Return, oh sense of self

I miss you

Let’s get back in the real world
