Painted smiles on ceramic masks can shatter,
Their falsity revealed on tender, tear-streaked cheeks.
Concrete walls built high and proud can be demolished
With a wrecking ball of harsh words,
Piercing holes, further damage inflicted on an already scarred heart.
A persistent enough enemy can breach any barrier if patient,
Find the key of destruction that unlocks the door kept closed,
Opening a mind filled with once silent screams for all to hear.
Be careful who you’re holding,
What fragile masterpiece you might be about to break irreversibly.
