The Lie

October 17, 2008
By Michaelanne Laurent, Henderson, NV

Twisted. Convoluted.
Empty. Thwarted.
Desperate tedious curls.
Pounds of powdery cover girl.
Fake hair color
Fading and drying.
Painstaking eyeliner.
Perfectly percise.
Overpriced jewels swaying
From her ears.
Her mask. Her disguise.
Her lie.
Hiding the plain beauty
Of her smile.
