Best Poem of Aron Heroux

Hollow Men

Hollow men with
hollow hearts
chide us with
a mindless script
rehearsed in fear
of standing out
of being naked
of looking in the mirror
and seeing nothing

Insidious lies traded
like poxed blankets
permeate us
our identity
our speech
our reflections
turn in shame

We're dirty creatures
we're ugly creatures
indulging in our shame
helpless and chained
to our fate:
bite the apple
buy the lie
sell the book
sell yourself

Bow and scrape
and pretend
that the world is flat
that to be naked

Read the full of Hollow Men


A teardropp explodes
on the cold floor
Warm shrapnel hovers
like a delicate flower
and falls glistening still
Scattered drops remain
canvassed in glassy skin
captivating and pulling me
with undeniable gravity
