Though I had thought of not posting any poetry or literary material here, I am making an exception today for this double Etheree.
We fight with words.
We wilt with them.
You smile a wan smile,
I return it, pale.
You give me defences.
I give you more reasons.
Fight progresses everyday,
You kill, I kill more, more, more!
Our eyes smile with nothing at all.
Our lips speak with meaninglessness.
We are a showpiece out there, smiling.
Our hands meet to touch, they do nothing.
My mind reels with abuses I could’ve said.
You look away, and I know yours does, too.
