Cosmetic Love

Cosmetic Love by Chima Daniel on ZenPens

On and off
like interrupted power
some loves are makeups.

Lotions to rub
Perfumes to wear
Red lipsticks
Blue eyelashes…

The lovers,
predators
longing to quieten lust.

And the pimples,
the scar,
the eczema
with golden foundation.

All hidden but present.
Then the sun goes down,
showers
towels…
nothing to hide again.

Mirrors revealing
the mind scheming
another day
of cosmetics
to gain love again.
