Lipstick Fantasy

On bated wings of illusion,
and deceiving words of 
conclusion,
the storms rage on within her
and the rain streams down her 
face.
Into her hands, a memory,
of what she thought could 
never be,
shell fondle it until its cold,
and seek the warmth within.
Hold her head up towards the 
sky,
she screams at the heavens, a 
whispered sigh,
wondering who'll she have to 
be,
to be herself.
Her love's not for the broken 
hearted,
her endless story hasn't even 
started.
She laughs so hard, she starts 
to cry,
"Oh God," she screams,"please 
let me die!"
She walks away in a bittered 
rage,
the book is closed, she turns 
the page,
jaded eyes that hate the soul,
who made her what she is.
Kissing the flames, she turns 
away,
she drops down on her knees to 
pray,
crawling to the edge, she looks 
below,
she never knew how hard it 
was, to let go.
Minutes crawl by,
she starts to cry,
"Oh God," she whispers, "I've 
already died..."
she starts to burn and quiver 
inside,
the storm still rages on...

She whispers a smile to passers 
by,
but never again will she catch 
their eye,
she tells you which dream to 
meet her in,
but she's never there.
