He caused her disappointment
for his own indulgence and charm,
Angel’s beneath the closed doors,
Her eyes are swollen
like a soul trafficker China-doll.
Hello there beloved missing piece,
I am knocking on Heaven’s door
to see and feel you once again,
Words that are yet to confess,
I pray we shall meet in my sleep.
Mascara keeps me awake,
Concealer gives me confidence,
The world’s my stage to conquer,
I am safe in my own skin,
With or without Kabuki painting.
