Hidden deeply

Within tangled parts of me

I hide within recesses

The displeasure of it all.

The hideous crime

Befallen the truth

Shining brilliantly

Upon the lies of man.

Masks hang on a wall

To forge alliances

That befall the riddled

Defile the innocent

Harden the weak

Lay wealth upon the poor

While taking everything

From those that gloat

Their riches.

Promises whispered in the dark

Though unseeingly

Nothing more

Than empty words

Like those etched in a tomb

Nobody visits
