Stripped Bare Of Makeup - Poem by Paula Glynn
I stare at my reflection in the mirror,
My face stripped bare of makeup,
I don't feel like a clown any longer,
My spirit, my heart and my love stronger.
I swim in the sea,
And am anchored in the waves,
My heart beating with love,
And this spirit is cleansed of hate,
Like the dirty water going down the sink,
Mascara, eyeliner and lipstick just a memory,
And in bed I dream of the night just passed,
For the grass is always greener,
Just like those chick lit books.
And the moon shines on my clean face,
My skin softened with face cream,
And in the morning the sun shines down upon me,
And I apply my makeup,
Another day just begun,
This spirit not blue,
For I reach for the stars with every passing day,
As I sing a melody of life for myself,
And real life carries on day-after-day,
With the reapplication of beauty,
Like a celebration of colour.
