unknown identity

By:Shelbi Henny

wire laces 
bordering the true identity
that was hiding underneath
a beautiful face
sitting with a devilish smile
with arms to drain out
every single lie
then push the truth into
cushioned wall rooms
that whisper
and tie you down
with injections of polygamy
numbing hypotheses
of treatment
draining you in filth
though withstanding
the outcome
yet suffering in agony
your skin burns
your body bends
your arms twist
your back breaks
along with your heart
as your feet and soul
drag from sores and blisters
your ears ring
after rehashing over and over
the transparency
the gutter that became
your home
to the only thing left
is to watch
as the identity forms
and takes over everything
familiar and unknown
