Brutal duality
Duels across
Emeralds hidden
From sight
Under the brim
A shade shifts
All in passing
For delivery of pleasantries
Or debilitating pain
From nadirs
Versed in just what
A moment in life can be
A sweet, tender, delicate memory
A silent second of tension, just a passing
A return to the rule of the ruthless
I’ve learned the difference in my delving
Emerging as the delicate decibels
Of a smelted heart
Capable of more than this medium of art
Such was nurture
I prefer my poetic nature
