Staring into the mirror
Trying to make a plan
How to do it this time?
Wondering if she can

Pale powder on her skin
And, touch of blush
Carefully applied now
Slowly now, no rush

Eyes come together
With a quick stroke
A bit of black here
With gold, now coat

Lipstick being applied
Dark crimson tones
Hair brushed so much
Until gold, it shone

Staring into the mirror
She sees someone new
Her face masked so much
She no longer looks true

Her beauty is hidden
Like a lily gilded so
Hid beneath the mask
Her beauty; You'd never know

    I enjoyed this poem. One of the better poems on makeup covering the true you. Though I don't think makeups bad I don't think it should mask your personality. You shouldn't become a different person just because you are wearing it.
    Thanks for the comment on my non-rhyming poem. I don't normally write them, and I don't love to read them. Almost EVERYTHING else I write is rhyming. You should check out my other stuff. Thanks though!
