Staring in the mirror
at still seeing the self she wants to hide
In spite of the adornments she rarely uses:
the low-cut little black dress
the strappy high-heeled shoes
the pearls in her ears
the perfume on her wrists
and between her breasts
Tools that women have been using
throughout the ages:
The dark eyeliner on her lower lids,
does it hide the sadness in her eyes?
The warm glow of Guerlain Divinora,
does it mask the trembling of her lips
as she thinks about the words
that she must utter tonight?
Words that need to be said
Feelings that need to be expressed
However much they go against
what her heart is crying out for
Turns out the light
And walks out into the dark
Hoping that her armor
is strong enough
to protect her
The two of them,
