Famine and Bloodshed

this pain unbearable

my eyes swell

as salty tears

trickle

I lie to onlookers

claiming pain

for war, poverty

famine and bloodshed

feigning the cause

I seek that rose

as my new subject

in this endless

act of duality

so that this secret

may never be known

to even Layla herself
