I have once swum in a Mascara Ocean
Thick with illusions, illustrations of unattainable beauty
I once treaded in an Eyeliner River
I'm amazed that I didn't drown from the
Acrylic Nails, created from Hate Comments on Instagram
I once dove in a Lipsticked Lake
I've mistaken it for a calm body of water, but it only
Quicksanded how I felt when I stared at myself
I have swum in the depths of the Miraculous Mirror
Full of fish flinging lies--maybe truth?
I couldn't tell which, I gulped a handful
Of Doubts and I choked,
Dirty Water streaming out of my ears,
Pooling my heart, surrounded with blood.
I hope no one swims here.
I don't think a lifeguard has
I don't think a lifeguard has survived.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalms 139 14
