Misled from a smile
An uneasy remorse
At life’s burdens and trials
Decisions without recourse.
A simple cagey nod and a “Hello”
Shrouded by mutual faith
Assurance flings from a sudden blow
Chitchat utters a tall myth.
A deep undisclosed voracity
Restitution bestows boastfulness
Aloofness displaces sanctity
Reprisals through hands of tenderness.
