Make-up,
It makes me feel pretty.
Now I blend in with the rest of the city.

Make-up,
It covers up the bruises and pain.
My boyfriend says, “I still love you the same.”

Make-up,
It helps me hide,
From all the true pain inside.

Make-up,
You’ve been nothing but a good friend to me.
Helping me feel safe from reality.
