Crayons.

Little girls play pretend
Like starlets with rosy cheeks
And wine coloured lips
That make it intoxicating.
The smell of perfume
The stench of allure
How we adored
Colorful things
Make-up to make us up
Like crayons of colors
Drawn on a face
Fresh canvas to create
A whole new art
Where girls turn to women
And women to little girls
Oh! what an illusion
Oh! what an art
When crayons become
Works of art
And beauty
An artificial mark.
