layers

everyday i put on my layers

a set clothes to garb my ugly nakedness

a thin veneer of composure to hide the anxiety the lurks beneath

a facade of niceness for the approval of others

there are layers for every purpose in the wardrobe of my mind

each layer well used and coated with the warm patina of shame.
