Evening routines

So here I am taking off my makeup

Thinking about how I can never just sleep it off

Wondering if that indicates that it is good makeup

Or bad makeup

I wonder the same thing about you

I can’t just sleep you off


Does that mean you were a good boyfriend or a bad boyfriend?

And as I thought about it, I thought how my mascara comes off in flakes and lashes

While my eyeliner seemingly evaporates

Yet my eyebrows retain their boldness for a few days before fading away

And I realize that you were both a great lover and a terrible friend

And pieces of that reality

Remain and will remain in different parts of me

For I’m not sure how much longer


I no longer care how well my makeup washes off, only how well it wears
