Filters & Masks

I use filters like a mask.

We live in a world where flaws are corrected and concealed.

I can’t imagine you would still like me in bad lighting

with every imperfection out in the open.

So I hide behind these digital cover-ups hoping you’ll stay,

that you’ll forge my technological cloak is a trick

to make you see me as flawless as I wish I could be.

Can you blame me?

I just want to be one of the pretty girls…

like you.
