Poetry Day 19

Day 19: Rhyming Verse

The reason I actually enjoy these poems is because it honestly does challenge me.
But I really enjoyed today's prompt- so much that I wrote two poems!! 
Enjoy! :)

The Made-Up Mask
Eyeliner and
some primer
For your eyes or face,
there's a place.
Lip-Gloss or Lip-stick,
Take your Pick.
BB Cream or foundation
Liquid or powder
Mascara- put it on and have fuller lashes- it's an illusion
We make-up our masks
We put on this make up to create a mask of our outer-self. 
Why can't I be proud of myself?
With the flaws that are present on the outside 
we can try to hide
But the flaws that lie within, 
that's something, to describe- I don't know where to begin.

You Brighten My Day
There are those who hear what they want to,
There are those who do what they want to do,
There are those say what they say.
Then there's me, I say what I may and try to be who I want to be.
I'll admit, I sometimes pretend that everything is okay,
but you see right through.
You showed me what is true,
Truth to be told, 
I just want to be here for you to hold.
You're the person who brings out of a different side of mine,
You help let the sun shine,
Bright on my side,
So I no longer want to hide.
