commonly (n.) cosmetics, but also (n.) constitution, and more importantly (v.) to forgive.

because society needs to teach more of the last two

makeup

The cold hard reality

Hits my bare naked body

As I cleanse myself free

But lately,​ I’ve been stepping out of the shower

just to tie my hair back up again

A tight low bun, forcing my shoulders down

with such damp weight.

Back straight, chest high, chin up

a firm stance and a strong gait

I make myself up for the world

without colour or concealer

Quite a subtle deception of self and I,

the slave and the master

Yet, love—

Hiding behind tear-stained pillowcases

Mother gently pulling on my double hair-tie

Letting such reinforced strands fall apart

Forgiveness

Oversaturating the sheets

And lessons I have yet to learn
