Contumacious remarks abound Words that sting and injure deeply A reflection of their inner turmoil Played out in another’s space Their hatred knows no bound The distance of the internet Turns us into faceless combatants A Case study on wounding for wounding sake Image consciousness rules the day The image required not found With a cursory glance The inner person Of no importance The gloss of looks and the clothes one wears Sparkles and fools The rejection stings Its ferocity and frequency An attempt to demoralise The vituperation of unknowns Has inflicted deep un-healing wounds Forever kept fresh and open No peace for your psyche The occasional warmth Stings hardest The rarity of affection seems A cruel inhuman joke
