What lies beneath,
Stays hidden from the world around.
Remains unseen from the naked eye.
Walls are built thick and sky-high.
None can penetrate through.
Darkness is both a friend and enemy.
During the harsh times,
It serves as a sanctuary.
But again, it can be a world
Eyes swollen and bloodshot from crying.
Nose red from sniffing.
Cheeks pale with no colour visible.
Lips quivered trying to remain in control .
Hands clenched into fists.
Nails dug into palms.
Blood was drawn but,
No heed was paid.
To the naked eye, all
But then what really is the definition of flawless…..
