Glass Houses - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Glass Houses

Fast and fierce, powerful and strong
Claiming your rights, while judging my wrongs
Standing stick straight, disguised in a mask
Throwing your stones, without breaking the glass

Trying to hide the kinks in your veins
Afraid of the truth, ashamed of the stains
Living your life, on a wild ego trip
While foolishly letting the dark secrets slip

You're a knight dressed in armor of stainless steel
Believing this farce of a life is for real
But I know the truth, the demons within
And the deep dark obsessions that drive you to sin

Your nature denied, it keeps you on guard
From secrets that teeter, like a house of cards
But the bane still simmers beneath your skin
Threatening exposure…like an evil twin

Yet, you deem me unworthy for the light of day
Only as good as a victim of prey
While exploiting my nature, you gobble in greed
Feigning your virtues, while betraying your creed

You whisper confessions across the lines
Corrosion that seeps from a wicked mind
Then snub your nose like a man of class
Still throwing those stones….from your house of glass!
