Lipstick - Poem by Julie Bond

Crimson red

Lipstick letters

On the foggy

Mirror's glass

Explain everything

Plain as day

Just why it

Had to end this way

Lipstick letters

On the fogged glass

The only thing

I left for you

A lipstick letter

In my shade of red

Are that let you know

I was even there

A Dear John letter

In the tint of my lips

My last little gift to you

Is this Lipstick Letter
