Illusions of Grandeur

scrubbed free of pretense

my face

my soul

left raw

naked

fine lines radiate out

create delicate starburst pattern

like stone hitting thin ice

bullet penetrating glass

illusion of integrity maintained

until the lightest touch

in the most vulnerable place

shatters me into beautiful shards

that refract prismacolor light onto

cold

white

walls
