Making up for a makeup!

Updated on August 22, 2015

Quite oblivion

to breaking my back

is my beloved

whose penchant for cosmetics

has lead

to my bankruptcy ,


not realizing

that her natural beauty

gets marred

by spatulate applications;

self-pitying my own plight

I get drowsed myself

in the left-over coins


on the hope of buying

some loaves for my family!

      It always amazes me how through creatively using a string of words a true story come to light. Well done.
