Cracked Shells

you reveal patches
of non-acceptance, resentment
festering within

flawless exterior cracking up
in failed attempts to control
you reveal patches

living under the same roof
never together- with a nagging ache
of non-acceptance, resentment

I try to be nonchalant – but
pain reminds me of wounds
festering within
