Mascara Stains

 

 

She commits suicide

every morning when she

gets in the car and drives

to work

 

Small deaths

that add up

to a tragedy

 

The water from the tap

can’t wash away the nagging

dread that nails itself into

the fragments of her long neglected

heart

 

She puts on her fake smile

and heads out for the day

 

Not realizing that someone

sees the real her behind

the discount cosmetics
