Bleeding Mascara

Hide from the world in darkness
Protected in tangled sheets
Curling up to recoil from pain
A broken heart continuing to beat

I try to be something you want
Painting my face to pretend
Creating a mask to hide behind
Just wanted to prevent the end

Longing so deep inside me
Nought could mean more to me
Than your lips upon mine in the darkness
Together under the sheets

But ridicule is thrown from every direction
They know you are all I'm after
But like they care, they don't see the pain
Or the tears fall with bleeding mascara

-x-[So this is the end]-x-

  I like the second part the most, that sounds something like what I do, trying to be the best for the person you love hoping for them to want you more cause you are what they want, even though its not who you are, what you want, and what you want to be and do. And the only reason you did it so they wouldn't see the real you so they would never leave.

Then I liked the first part the second most as you hide from the world, the truth, your own pain, you wrap up in your lies tring to hide the truth away so you don't have to face the truth even when its eating away at you, your heart is broken and you are trying to find the peices but it still hurts so much, you just cant get rid of the pain.

Then I liked the last part the third most, but everyone thinks your a fool because of how you feel for someone, they insault you because of what you do, how you love, what you love, and why you love. But you only love that person and only them no one else, people lauph at you and kick you down when you feel bad, they don't see what lies inside, it hurts so much cause no one knows the turth, the pain that you keep inside, tears falling running away from your eyes just as you try to escape your pain, but as much as you let it out as much as you try to let it go, it just keeps coming back.

And I liked the third part the forth most, But I dont feel like typing about it now cause my fingers hurt.

Good poem, write more, its nice to read something good, THANK YOU FOR THE AWSOME POEM

  I'm happy to see that you're getting better in your writing. It seems your rhmying is becoming more advanced. The meaning of the piece is yet again dark, I hope you don't feel this sad ALL the time.

  I love the way this is written. As obsidiandreams said, it has a lyrical sense to it that really works well for this piece. I like the wording, particularly of "protected in tangled sheets" and "or the tears fall with bleeding mascara"

  This piece rings depressing thoughts once more through my mind running constant,

it gives a good lyrical format, and it sounds awesome the words form in your head to create an image of tear drops simple but different in the way that they differ in only the level of anguish needed to be repeled, and to be vented from the aura of a being that sumone is

great write, i hope you continue

  I really liked this because it wasn't the typical whiny poem. I appreciated the first stanza because it set the poem off really well.

  I admire this poem. Black mascara and eyeliner really symbolize a lot to me. I have cried so much in my life that it seemsmy strength was measured by how many streams of black I had on my cheeks at the end of the day.

Longing so deep inside me
Nought could mean more to me
Than your lips upon mine in the darkness
Together under the sheets

That is my truly absolute favorite stanza. "Nought" is a rarely used word in poetry that I read and I think it's very cool how you can put it into the poem without making the entire thing sound goofed, y'know? I really like this poem and I hope you check out my site soon.

  I love that. I know way too well what you mean. It's sad.
You know, just when I think your writing can't get any better, you always prove me wrong.

The part:

"Painting my face to pretend
Creating a mask to hide behind"

For some reason, reminds me of a song that says:
"I play dead- to hide my heart,
Until the world gone dark fades away.
I stay dead- until you veil my scars
And say goodbye to fate,
Before it's too late."

I don't know why though. It has nothing to do with it.
I was just inspired to start singing, so I figured I'd share

Anyways, once again, I'm saying 'Great job'
Your talent fascinates me.
Very beautifully done.

That's so sad. I like it.
Stupid "they." I dont even know them and I hate them.
I'm sad now.
The wording is wonderful. I like that you found something to rhyme 'mascara' with. That's hard.
I like this whole part:
"Hide from the world in darkness
Protected in tangled sheets
Curling up to recoil from pain
A broken heart continuing to beat"
Be a great day
If you have one good thing going for you, it's your lovely poetry.

  "Hide from the world in darkness

I like that line, it just caught my eye. I guess the reason is that I hide my emotions inside of my and on the outside I show calmness. Anyway great write. The title reminded me of the band Atreyu, because they have a song called Bleeding Mascara. Good title, good flow, it's just an all around good poem. Two thumbs up!
