Dark, blue circles. 

Everyday.

That's all there is

Skin soft, still black

A black that represents ill health,

aging and eventual death.

 

'You look so tired',

Another early night and no difference

Trying. Trying so hard to create a face that will be acceptable in society,

She does it to blend in, not to stand out.

 

Fear. Fear of the big reveal,

When everyone will ask questions

'I never looked that tired when I was your age'

Perhahs you never had a war in your head,

perhaps you didn't battle with yourself everyday

perhaps your thoughts never consumed you.

 

Perhaps, perhaps.
