WATERPROOF

Is says on the packaging

That my mascara is

“Waterproof.”

But it isn’t.

As I cry

My tears scrape up the

Black ash

And smear it beneath my eyes,

Publicly displaying

My dismal position.

 

Waterproof.

 

Yeah right.

 

A lot of things aren’t waterproof.

Some things dissolve in water,

Gone in a second.

But we need water to survive.

Me?

I’m waterproof.

But what I’m not is

 

Lifeproof.

 

I climb to great heights

And then

CRASH.

My packaging didn’t say life proof.

But I wish it had.

‘Cuz it hurts

So bad.
