Friend of the night,

Place to secret things that shouldn't be seen,

Popular haunt for tooth-fairies,

A miniature gold-mine of Euros and coppers,

White merged to colour,

By pillowcases,

Floral, character,

The white always lost,

The same way,

Blackened by the mascara and eyeshadow,

That would have been too great an effort to cleanse away.

The End
