Acting - Poem by Danielle Ward

Cover up these flaws.
Hide the marks under white silk,
Pretend they aren't there.
Paint a smile on the face you no longer want,
Just for an hour, or two.
Red paint slicked on.
Pull the veil over your eyes, and theirs.
Your heart is locked behind brick walls, they will not see,
Nor will they need to.
They will only see her
As you push her forward into the spotlight,
And you watch from inside your mind.
