A Verse Tried #3

You know what’s magical?

It’s the brightest star
kept hidden in the sky.
Not the highlighter
which comes off as you cry.

You know what’s beautiful?

It’s the warmth of the sun
on a cold day of  January.
Not the colored lenses
which makes your vision blurry.

You know what’s scary?

It’s losing someone you love
and someone you adore.
Not the eyeliner
you fear would smudge off.

You know what’s liberating?

It’s accepting truth to yourself
in a world where love is gendered.
Not the make-up remover
you buy to rub on what you covered.
