Behind the beauty

In response to the Tuesday prompt at GoDogGO cafe

A facade
a mask,
a veil to
hide the imperfections

the desire to be
amongst the chosen
a false appearance:
a need to be universally accepted
this incessant need for the social inclusion

leaves her soul bruised and burnt
and behind the beauty
of her calming voice
and a soothing touch
she hides the scars
of her yesteryears
