Dark Lipstick

She hides behind dark lipstick

Her hair covers her face

She thinks, “If they can’t see me, they can’t judge me.”

It is her only self defense

 .

She nurtures the song inside of her

She creates behind closed doors

One day, her work will make them want her

For now, she is ignored.
