Anger battles anger
Mountainous chest heaves in desperation
As flat chest curses in confusion
Each back turns
And tears flow into the secret coffers of darkness
Strong masks on weak faces
Wearing off in few paces
Like chalk paint on stained mansions in rain
Oh what a tragedy!
Why can’t there be hearts of nakedness
Showing all the holes of needs?
Battle of hiding
Words which bleed in hearts abiding
Oh God! Oh God!
