Porcelain Face

For I shall never smile again to any soul.
As my beating flesh has transfigured to darkest coal.

Yet I lay pearl whites more gleaming than a pantheon pillar.
But what lies underneath is the subtle smirk of a serial killer.

I ascend high with the aesthetic of a monarch butterfly.
For what else am I ultimately but an unstable Gemini.

I herd my vulnerable toys to offer my alluring shelter.
Holding the cane not once but forever.

As dawn takes throne on its cosmic plain, a smile I provide.
Through a lunar takeover, Angel falls is flowing inside.

May the cycle of seven replay once more.
It shall not affect the concealed war.

Hidden I have not even a single will.
My wretched sapphires see the pill.
They see the abyss of the water mill.
My ears wish for the fire not to be a mere drill.
Driven towards the symphony of a sawmill.
No one. What is the point ?

Until one who became my checkpoint.

About haringeyunchained

Haringey Unchained is a collective of students aiming to show case the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, London. We think that through the promotion of our creative thoughts, we can educate our community, bringing to the foreground the critical and creative consciousness of a vibrant school in a deprived part of London. We are endeavouring to provide this blog as a platform for our community, giving the space to those whose work otherwise might not be seen or read. Being that the cuffs are off, we are able to express through our photography, art, short fiction and poetry, what’s really on our minds. We are free.
