Hot water pours over me as I scrub, scrub, scrub.
Washing away the sweat and stink of the day.
Gleaming, spotless I look in the mirror, a blank canvas.
With a practiced hand I apply colors, shades and accents.
I dry, brush and style my hair as my mind wanders over what to wear.
Matching top, cute skirt, socks and shoes for the occasion.
Earrings, rings, bracelet, necklace all shining in the light.
Ready to face the world for another night,
Perfectly beautiful, except for the inside.
