i will coat my eyelashes in exorbitant mascara

i will coat my eyelashes in exorbitant mascara

once a month, i can cry
once a month, i allow
myself to show how weak i am

once, once a month
once a month, i've had enough
and let myself fail to stand

but all the other days in between
i don't let myself shed tears
don't let myself shed tears

i will coat my eyelashes in exorbitant mascara
that way, i have reason not to cry
i have reason not to cry
i have reason to let myself die... 

The End
