Poem 73

image If you have to look up how to hide a face that’s just gone through crying, then know that is the time in which marks the day you’ve cried too many times. And if you’re an excellent pretender, then I am deeply sorry for the days and nights you’ve spent crying. I’m sorry that you have to hide it. This is for you. The Art of Crying Ive licked my lips a dozens times. Theyre so dry From defending my position, Desposition. And never getting through Your selfish Vindictive allocations. Its almost like a battle of brains, Of wits and of truth, But yours are close minded stereotypes You refused to rebuild With facts, And research, And of opening your heart To possibilities, To change. And here I am again Facing the cold side of the mirror Fogged by the heat Built from my breaths And from the tears. Cool water splashed on my face Dont erase the scar The way they erase tears. The puffs on my cheeks May disappear, But never the stick and stones Of words you stacked against me. I may look okay But this is just because The art of crying Is something I have mastered. &velajune
