Make-Up is A Girl's Best Friend

August 7, 2011
Slits on her wrists
Tears in her eyes
She covered it up
With the makeup of lies
Cheerleading captain
Blond hair and blue eyes
She had the star boyfriend
Or so...
That's what they said
She hid the bruising
That covered her arms
And when he hit her
She no longer jumped in alarm
So prone to the fights
So prone to the pain
So prone to her boyfriend's
Entertaining game
She never says anything
Never asks why
Just sits in her room
Because it's easy to cry
She'll just keep it going
Until the day she gets caught
'Cuz she thinks so naively
That the beatings will stop
