Make me up

My Mirror Image

Make me up

fill the mould

set the cast

bend and fold

drain my will

take my hope

shade me in

I can cope

better still

cut me down

paint the smile

on my frown

dress me pretty

pose me right

tan my body

conceal the white

no longer me

but better built

once a rose

and now I wilt.

This is lovely. Pretty much what every teenage girl goes through in at LEAST one hundred times in her life. And not even teenagers, at that. A full-grown woman can most certainly feel the same.

But I love this and thank you for sharing.
