Poetry Tuesday – Irreversible Damage

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.
