Word of the Day Challenge #103-Untitled Poem

No one ever looks
with depth
consideration
young girl hiding
right in front
eyes closed
while wide open.
Scars
buried beneath
broken heart
black death
burnt agony
beauty marred
escaping pain
the only way
one can…..
drugs
alcohol
sex…..
Night falls
moon rises
sun sets
evil runs
quiet through the veins
of men in power
of men who say they are brave
yet hide
beneath seals
arrogant complicity
while in truth…..
sands of time
tick tock
flip the clock
let grains fall
platitudes of broken memories
never again will man shine.
