Bright Lips, Dark Words

Such horrible realities were surprising from such beautiful lips.

The taste of her lip gloss
outlived her presence in my life
and yet she will remain
embedded upon my mind;
The ease with which she spoke
of what, to me, would be my
reveals a long story
which could fill volumes
and yet her volume
was calm and factual.

The damage wrought
upon her soul;
Her pain and suffering,
the realities which bent
her entire reality
could have been
a trip to the store.
