modern kindness


I don't know if I should visit those places
where you've just erupted,
and destroyed the areas
where I was supposed to build a home.

have you ever wondered
how it feels to know
about your words
that asked me for help
weren't real  
at
all.

where do I belong in this
world full of lies
guarded by your theatrical skills ?

what has this age come to be
where mothers tell their daughters
not to love
and fathers teach their sons
to hide what they feel.

can I ever be that kind again
if I cross the same eyes
that once lured me into sympathy
for the things that didn't exist ?

you turned my heart
into a monument of rocks

but if I let things stay the same
I'll lose myself within the rocks

so one by one I dismantle them
for the modern times have taught me
to break things that capture my essence

so in future, I want to turn into a monument
not the one built with rocks
but the one stood with
emotions.
