::Behind The Mask::

::Behind The Mask::

A Poem by Jeanette

Why do I only cry
When I have makeup on
Like when I feel pretty
I'm not as strong



Music filled with sorrow
Lovers little sighs
On any other day
Brings nothing to my eyes



But the times when I feel beauitful
Like nothing could ever hurt me
Are the times I'm left wide open
Vision blurry I can't see



I don't know if I'm vulnerable
When I feel more feminine
Or if the dustings on my eyes
Are just a mask of where I've been



To cover all the sadness
These two orbs have witnessed
To hide all the feelings
Like layers of skins thickness



Something about appearances
Really has me confused
Why people never look deeper
What have they got to lose



If you see me at my best
Just know that isn't it
That behind these made-up eyes
Is a girl on the fritz
