Painted on smile

Lipstick put on
like a painted on smile
nobody will notice
the sadness for awhile  

Mascara applied
to lashes of disguise
nobody will notice..
the moisture in her eyes

Blush brushed on
hiding tear streaked cheeks
covering up sorrow
of the love she seeks

a painted on face
to hide the pain
that she could never tell
or try to explain

So she will smile
and laugh
and glow
and nobody will ever know

that the mask that she wears
protects her from herself
with just a few touchups
she can become someone else

Until she gets home
and removes it all
only to have to face
her feelings after all....
