A Disguise – Piyangie Jay Ediriwickrema

The dark fashion glasses,

Blue or purple blusher strokes,

Full lips with blood red lipstick –

She is one of a kind

Behind closed doors –

Swollen eyes, bruised skin

Cracked lips –

The result of a fist-painting

The bruised skin,

The broken soul hidden

In invented fashion –

A disguise to deceive the world
