Word Vomit: Red Lips

Red Lips

By: Chelsea Hays

I wear red lipstick like armor

It’s a wine stain red

Almost the color of what love is suppose to look like

But doesn’t because that is only a drunk love.

The red lipstick makes me ready for battle.

Battle of the thoughts in my head screaming.

The people on the streets calling and degrading my every step one by one.

My red lipsticks makes me feel strong.

Strong enough to stand up for my injustices, for my faults.

That is until I get home and it smears off just as easy as it was to put on

Than I am not battle ready

I am just this scared, sad, worried little girl again…

But still the next day I put on my armor ready for battle.

My Name is Chelsea Hays. I am a Grad Student, superhero buff and future journalist turned superhero. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Graphic Communication from Arkansas State University. I am usually really shy and quite until you mention superheroes or anything in the nerd culture and I will jump right into the conversation. I have a passion for cosplaying, reading comic books, photography and design. My list of favorite comic book heroes include The Flash, Wonder Woman, Rogue and Captain America, even though my all time favorite character is of course Harley Quinn. That is just a little bit about me.
