Lipgloss plastered,

that way the smile stays stiff

and the frown can’t transfer.

Because really

–can a person truly kiss cracked lips

or love a breaking heart?

Make-up caked faces

hide the body’s imperfections,

in a world where everyone still searches

for “love everlasting”;

You once told me,

that before the altar is forever,

then said sorry,

that you really tried to mean it.

So really, it would seem,

there’s no such thing as forever

–and if love still exists,

she’s a cheat and a liar.
