Face of Death

By Martin Chrispine Juwa

Carries hills of worry
Not a twittering hope,
Or a smile in heart.
Only twinkling,
And wrenches,
Passing by a beautiful face.
Inside the sprouting heart,
Crumbs and husks lay.
Little fragments;
Those fragile, mournful eyes
In an innocent face,
And deadly ambitions.
Wrath watered by tears
And tethered by
Pastured indifference
Melancholy, and pure.
