just, so (r)

so many faces
        and none that hide
the razors
under your skin

avoid mirrors
   hide behind
beautiful curves
so none can see
just how weary

just – you think – stay too busy to think
and outpace the demons

      except, the one.
who can make your devils
       His own

One thought on “just, so (r)”

  1. As usual, a masterpiece. The concise way you take a lot of wordy emotions and condense them so neatly. Gracious, gracious me!
