who are we without darkness and shadows and secrets?
The Wall

I can only connect
with older men and
beaten women
because one soul
can recognize
another battered one

and I realize that’s
why I will always be
Ponyboy and Charlie
but I am not infinte
I will not stay gold
(I’ve always been silver)
because the rest of
the gang knows to
stay away from souls
in ragged clothing

no amount of lipstick
can disguise the
bruises on a mind
no amount of makeup
can take the shadow
out of these eyes
no amount of bleach
can erase the chemicals
stuck in every follicle

there’s not enough
hot water to wash
the stains off a soul
