NaPoWriMo Day 28
The Black Heart
by Ruqaiyah Davids
Her black heart beats
The sound is almost indiscernible,
Strangled by all her black words.
Black words muffled by black verbs.
What is left for her in this black world
For which she lives?
Grey spots of dishonesty and hypocrisy
Cement her black heart.
The black hurts.
The more it hurts
The more she spurts
Forth black words,
Littered with traces of red pain,
Oozing from her veins.
And it is hard for her to refrain;
She paints the walls
In her hurricane
And the masked face.
