Everything Looks Better In A Photograph

You're on the bathroom floor,
crying your heart out.
Asking God,
to make this pain stop.

Do they truly know you,
You wear the mask perfectly.
Everything looks better in a photograph,
Your eyes tell the whole story.

You pray to the cross,
But you don't know why.
Everyone looks so beautiful.
Is this heaven or is it a lie?

Your reflection speaks to you,
through the bathroom mirror.
Asking God,
Can you make this life more clearer.
