Put on The Costume

Image

Put on the costume, it is lovely

sparkling and brightly colored too

it appears almost magical from here

while you wear it time becomes dear.

Put on the costume, it suits you

cleaver, funny and filled with charm

it oozes kindness and gentle care given

class and wit displayed letting you disarm

whispers hide the hidden life you’re living

Put on the costume, it fools me

shiny surface reflecting love not often shown

it lies and complements filling hopeful heart

seemingly incapable of counting flaws in own

instead of making me a foe from which to depart

Put on the costume..I prefer it to the glaring truth

let it lie to me about what lies beneath.
