    ink reaping through their veins
    Letters decapitating their heart
    words invading their soul
    Sentences that leave a hole
    Releasing wavering pain
    A write written with feelings of despair
    A straight hit to the core
    A flow of rage in the heart
    Untouchable subjects that rots unconditional love
    A poem too unconventional for the eyes
    Who am I to hide my deepest thoughts
    “Freedom of speech”? Lies
    Freedom knows no speech
    Speech has no freedom
    Freedom has no boundaries
    People's minds? in the contrary
    My poem leaves them with profound scars
    They leave me with haunted thoughts
    My heart conveys what I want to say
    What is a poet, one that only sees gray?
    Hurt by one's words?
    Amorphous sorrow as if they were stabbed?
    The only answer
    I’ve been flagged

      I think many of us are astonished to find that other people see what we see and react as we do. I am glad I was able to fulfill this poem's destiny!
