The Transparency of War Paint

Submerged skin deep in solace, you play trickery in your silent rebellion. Soil claims sanctuary on defiant children like your veil lingers. You're still sweet. Sheepish smile behind war paint, we're not so different you and I. I too have bled music during my vow of silence and given myself up.
