Painted nails

Smeared lips a stained red

Cover girl

Attempting to hide

Dress pulled down

A little too tight

High heels spiked

Lost in wave of hashtags

Meaningless compliments

She poses

Strangers gawk and keep clicking her buttons

She washes down the attention with a flat off-brand

soda

At least someone loves her

Even if she doesn’t

At least for the night.

About the Author

From a very young age, Elizabeth knew she was meant to be a writer. Around 8 or so, she started with little poems inside birthday cards. As years went by, poetry became her safe haven in a world full of chaos and beauty. Through written words, she found her voice. A voice according to doctors, she was never supposed to have. Today at 34, she still re- reads those poems from the early days. Now housed on her bookshelf in old binders.
