Tainted Love

Would she?

Would she paint her toenails red
To mask the pains that her tears bled
Would she laugh at a random joke
Just to hide the truth that her eyes spoke
Would she pretend to like the summer days
When her heart is full of hopeless greys
Would she play her part just well
To cover the fears which in her dreams dwell
Would her lips smile as the painted masks
Bleeding with words that broke her heart
Or would she dare to bare it all
Fight her demons and stand up tall

Hi, I'm a nature lover, a trekker and an ardent reader from Mumbai, India. After playing Lawyer for a time, I shifted to my passion and love – History! A 9 to 6 job as a Senior Executive: Research, Content Writer and Editor helps me earn by bread and butter which is ultimately spent on travel and food :)
