Ever since she was six

The first thing noticed

…was her lips.

Started off as “too big for your face”

but eventually became

"Damn…I’d love to

have a taste.”

In a world full of

sexual advances & pseudo-support,

She turned embarrassment

into enchantment

Awkwardness into allure

Coated those attention-grabbing lips

with a mesmerizing red lipstick.

Thus making her calling card

A cherry kiss,

on postcards, collars

…and lips.
