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



She puts on her fake smile

and heads out for the day


Not realizing that someone

sees the real her behind

the discount cosmetics
