Thin Disguise

Poetic Asides – Nov chapbook challenge

Day 2- write a Disguise poem


Thin Disguise

she slips on her disguise –
it fits her like a silky red chemise
hiding imperfections
a disguise so perfect
no one will see her true self
the self filled with anxiety
the self consumed by insecurities
her smile and tinkling laugh
conceal the darkness
