The invisible girl painting myself
brighter shades that you might like
hoping you'll stop looking through me.
Coloring vibrancy across my skin
shades of lipstick you said you liked
I started wearing lipstick
I hated lipstick and always have
I smeared it off of my lips
wiping clean the slate I had left
just a color palette
all of the shades of people
Blended across my glass face
People I couldn't convince
to stop looking through me.
