Red Lipstick

Behind red lips
hides a new girl.

She’s beautiful,
pure,
innocent,
sweet, and
everything
she wants to be.

Red lips make her
a model, a star,
and one who
lives for the attention.

When she washes her face,
removes her makeup
and red lipstick
she cries black tears.

She refuses to look in the mirror
and face the girl she used to be

  1. It’s so ironic because I’m currently editing my poem about red lips for my semester’s portfolio and I stumbled upon this! Love it <3
