Bring The Black

Camouflage,
come quick;
I've been spotted -
without my social face
locked firmly in its place.

I laughed too loud and now
the bile ripe aftertaste
is birthing bitter words I can't get back.

Camouflage, come quick
and bring the black.

Been there, done that especially in front of an audience...what you write brings back the good, the bad, the horror

Laughed too loud? Are you stuck in an English novel or something?

Visbility, much less fame, is so vastly overrated, don't you think? Said the thumbs-upper from behind his mask.

I feel this poem as its words leave my mouth. I've been there and no one has ever said it better. Favorite superpower: erasing the last 10 minutes.

It can be tough to be who you really are. Too many people have negative opinions just because they can be anonymous. Thanks for sharing. :)

It seems there's no privacy anymore with the availability of cameras and such.

I struggle with that social face. Probably because I'm anti-social.
