Facade – Free verse

Chipped nail polish on dry, cracked feet

Broken petals of wilted pink roses

Shadows of age under pained eyes

Still lips, a coffin, of unspoken grief

Loose stomach and a few extra pounds

A reminder of love they say is best to forsake

Tiptoe around feelings, don’t make a sound

Knowing sooner or later, this facade will break.
