damage control

slowly he picks away at the shell of his swathing

          enough shrouded persona

                    the charade had to retreat

                              masquerades are for fools

                                        the wise man moves on

weapons of self-destruction have powerful aims

          delusion deception survival

                    denial protection abidance

                               incisive forearmed scars

                                         harmful mind’s blades

finally he cracks under rapid oncoming fire

          looks into gun barrel’s shine

                      focusses on the target

                                 cradles the trigger

                                           lets go of the pain
