Left Alone

April 10, 2011
Mascara paints eyes black
but gets under finger tips when wiping
away tears.
I scrubbed with water
forgetting there was soap
on the counter.
Blue and green fell down face
as eye shadow
became clown paint
and tie die.

I looked ugly.
My feet hurt so I sat down
and turned off my cell phone.
