Poem – “Bravado”

Bravado

You’re a wandering ghoul
Restless but chained with damages
You’re really something beautiful, stranger
Even if only a moonchild thinks so, it’s true
If you don’t believe me…
Siphon out that last bit of careless bravado
Syringe it free from your veins and take a look
See what held you back in the mirror
