National Poetry Month: Hidden Selfie

Hidden Selfie


The camera clicks

superficial smiles;

a portraiture mask

It never spies

the hidden image

underneath the grin

Never captures

the broken

spirit

the persistent

anxiety

the unbearable

insecurity

All these emotions,

these snapshot images

stay a secret
