Airbrushed Life

The painting of your life,
the one you commissioned from

airbrushed snapshots
taken over decades,
covering your finer moments…

where are the blemishes,
the nights of empty dance cards
and failed finances;

the tightrope antics and
dares of promiscuity?

Your path from there to here
is not clear in
this painting of your life.

The five word prompts for The Secret Keeper’s Weekly Writing Prompt #39 are paint, clear, dare, cover and dance.
