So Pretty by Maggie Mae

Your make-up looks wonderful!

A comment on a picture

In which I was wearing

Very little make-up

Many people commented

Only this comment

I found not complimentary

It really set my day off badly

I even asked my mom

In case I was being over sensitive

But she and my best friend

Agreed it was rude

That was not the end

They felt the need to message me

No wonder you have a man

Those red lips, who does your make-up?

Because honestly how could I

Get a man otherwise

How could I look so pretty?

Without someone else helping me

I did not post the picture

To get compliments however

Backhanded compliments

Simply show your ugly heart
