Prom Night

(Prom Night)
Mascara paints her mouth,
lips a scorched crevice
the blush of her tongue
licks the paint,

drunk on tears & “Lonely
Nights”
 
Kisses beneath spot lights
She takes a drag of his breath,
like a cigarette, a chain smoker
addicted to the nicotine taste
 
Couples dance words,
in glances tears, tainted with
Happiness & Grief
