The Wall of Deceit

Originally posted on Medium

Normal waves
Dampened by the sinking weights
of hurt over years
Unflinching today
Blanks eyes, and quizzical brows
Witness doubtful cries
Numb is the word
To what I feel
A game of rock, paper, scissors
Defeated are those who show their guts
Feeling small
Laying it out there
Bare, to be trampled on
To be a display
On the sidewalks of an uncaring passerby
Screams fall on deaf ears
Like long nails screeching on glass
Muffled by the shower
Who cares
Numb is the word
To what I feel
The wall is unsurmountable
The wall can’t be broken
The wall, is willful
The wall of deceit
