Peroxide Girl

When I first saw you.
Thought I'd never see,
Another woman
As beautiful as thee.

As time began to strip away
All your blonde array.
The true colors of your life
Revealed all your strife.
Oh peroxide girl
With dark brows.
And black roots.
I can see, now!

Your actual verbs 
     beneath your peroxide words.
In hand a knife 
     backing a peroxide life.

What you are hiding 
Can't be so binding.
What's so bad about your natural color?
What's so sad about your natural life?
Why was it so important to bleach your past?
Did you think this new color would last?
