Behind The Red Lipstick

Behind the red lipstick, she just stands there
Above all others; thought to be pure
For goodness sake be on its way
As one could never be sure of our stay

As daylight fades and dusk draws near
Her thoughts give way, unravelling fear
As curtain falls on the thoughts of pure
Submerged in dark her heart be seared

Religious fanatic help stroll in the dark
Clings onto some hope with use of some dope
Gleefully numb all senses depend
Carry her through like reciting; repents

Uncensored graphics never to touch her blessed eyes
Like daggers they blacken her purest of heart
Knowledge of ebbs and flows of life cuts her deep
Ill equipped they crush her heart into a heap

Denial that she covet thy friend not destined be hers
Her loss of a loved one clings on like a third
As her scent lingers into the friend’s boundaries
Behind her red lipstick, railroading he be

A promise to him of inheritance hopes
A prisoner of her own mind, intent to be kind
Her feelings come alive as dusk draws near
Yet another day she prays not missing a beat

Just maybe you’ll find the light bring you home
Not shared by all others as you sit on your throne
Arise to open your eyes and discover the real
Your partisan views spin in the wheels

She wore her red lipstick; a secret solution
Like scriptural savior with forces she airs
Owe all the pain, she prays in vain
As she transmutes her pompous red lipstick she wears

Illusions of purity fill her air
Only her beliefs; she does not spare
No. I don’t mind. No lipstick be mine
Behind your red lipstick, wish you to find… true happiness and peace of mind.
