Under the guise

of

spurious smiles –

animosity thrives.

Hollow gestures

flower

running counter to

true nature.

As

words likened

to

pebbles

impinge like boulders

shoulders weary

from burdens

foisted by others

as the illusion

dissipates.

The piracy of

adoration

ensues

leaving egos

not bruised

but shattered.
