This is nice. I love all the small details that make this poem - "mascara flaked tiredness" especially sticks out at me as a great visual to show just what she looks like during this struggle. I love the way you've started this, like there was something more before the poem itself. That's nice. "guilty fingerprints" is fantastic - I just really like that idea. And the paradox of having a "faithless face, sitting in the back room of a church hall" is just wonderful. Beautiful work. Keep writing! :)

"mascara flaked tiredness"

"untouched bottle of obliteration"

I love the imagery and interesting word pairings. Nicely done.
