Inspirations: Painting by Hawra’a Khalfan

They
thrust
her
-self forward
blinded to
her cold knuckles
punching the world.
They
Ignored her
piercing screams
the cause of
her now broken voice box.
They
towered
over her
minute resting restless body.

The feigning of happiness
Creates voids
Black holes
Distorted realities
Unimpressive perplexities
Dark realms
Of lies
Deceits
Heartbreaks

The feigning of happiness
Creates loneliness
Screens create divisions
Of spaces and times
Of realities and hallucinations

The feigning of happiness
Creates disillusions
Filled with untruthfulness
Coated with meaningless luxuries

The feigning of happiness
Creates impossibilities
of true bliss.

The feigning of happiness
is
unreal;
unimpressive;
unfortunate.

She
thrust
herself forward.
Ignoring
the punching cold.
Ignoring
the pinching wind.
She
towered
over
everyone around her
-with her different viewpoints-
fueled by her absolute unhappiness
with all of them.

She now resides
broken
upside down
tormented
in all their eyes.
But happy in her own.
