Mourning

So all your strength was but another facade

Carefully put together to lure us in

We don’t allow ourselves to be fooled by you again

From here onwards, we choose our own path

Let me mourn you today

Tomorrow, there’ll be no place for you to stay.

Sneak

Her eyes would swell and decompress

Like a balloon left at the mercy of a bored rascal 

She was choked up till her throat 

But there was no way to let it out.

The day moon turned red 

Was the day the whole world looked at it

She had to go on

As subtly as possible

Quietly shedding her skin

Creeping through the poisonous bushes.
