Behind the Scenes

She wears a face full of makeup to match her perfectly styled hair.

This woman is beautiful, although she is not aware.

She carries the weight of the world on her shoulders,

overwhlemed that she is living her life for another.

She watches herself fall apart,

beginning to think she was just a work of art.

As the rain begins to wash her face,

she is frightened by the image that awaits.

Behind the scenes her double life is revealed

with no makeup to mask her, the layers start to peel.

The life she was living was not a life of her own,

for she was living a life most did not know.
