Masked Behind

February 5, 2008

I no longer have much hair to dissemble behind.
I feel semi devoid and I think the world
is going to see me
differently now.
At least I still have my titanium dioxide,
which masks itself behind names
such as Cover Girl or Chanel.
And i'll still tiptoe out of bed
in the morning
to mask up my imperfections
on the days I don't want you to see them.
And you'll still feel extra special, thinking I am comfortable enough
with you in the morning,
because you have no idea
that I put my face on well before
you set your eyes upon it.
