“I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.”
~James Michener

Hide behind a painted face,
pretty as plastic.
Hide behind a veil of lies,
an air of fake.
I can see through the layers of perfection you have placed so precisely,
See past the lies and snide smiles;
To where the tears reside.
Tears and despair hidden deep,
Almost as if they don’t exist.
So go ahead, hide behind your pretty face,
It is the ultimate form of cowardice.

I like this poem very much and enjoyed reading it. Although I think the title should be changed to something more unique, the poem was amazing. Great job!

Please read, rate, and comment on my poems! Thanks!
