quiet underneath

you wear your happiness
like skin before the scarring
smooth surfaced
hidden from the sun
and I believe it will be there
quiet underneath
hidden and forever

you build your monsters
with hollows beneath the bones
clear bloodless
hidden from the sparks
and I believe they will have fear
quiet underneath
of fire and forever

you wear your face masked
unrevealed from eyebrow down
smooth surfaced
hidden beneath the clay
and I believe it could be marked
with thumb-scratch expression
of joy and forever
