DEATH BEHIND THEIR SMILE

Written by Editor

A hunting world
A spiny cave I ran into
Couldn’t find rest
Filled with agitation

I sob in silence
Tears behind my smile
I shout in silence
Death behind their smile

My shadow taken away
Left with nothing
My Grand sent away
Not allowed to win

I was almost there
I was this close
But thrown into stillness
Down into repose

I await help from the little population
The whole was little noised and all
I couldn’t but cry
I tried but cried
Wish I could stand
Wish I could move
I drown in my down
Alone, was laid to rest in the lone room.
