A sarcastic irony.
Of depth it is of loss
While such does none,
of hollow it does burn.
Emotions concealed
Thus, a life of deceived reality.
It moves of no impetous flow
shows a fraction of truth behold.
Should one see,
a facade burns to life
of slow track, one could wonder
reality...behind the smile.
