One thick layer of foundation
Hides my lines of worry.
But they don’t erase the worry.
One thick line of kohl
Hides my eyes’ tear-induced puffiness.
But it doesn’t erase the tears.
One thick swipe of lipstick
Hides my drooping lips.
But it doesn’t erase the sadness.
One thick layer of this and that
But never erases anything.
