a body of peeled-off skin
blown by the edges of the wind
unclothed by bitter harsh words
sharp tongue has trimmed and thinned

fighting a foe with bare iron hands
cannot guaranty a sure clean win
being quiet and calm in speechlessness
battle could be won without firing a gun

best-kept secrets of truth have been set free
allegations can’t prove charges of being guilty
bullets fired became blank and empty
head-on collision is a fight against the bully …

chopped pieces of hearts
drafting some words to say
leaving the tongue speechless

embattled kissing lips
trying to spit some aches
and summon the fiery dragon

flying news with outgrown claws
scratching the timid skin
man on the cover able to snatch a dream

rumors from the pit of stupid lies
from tongues to tongues to papers and pens
unrolling the rusty bullets to shoot

but what use the bullets can kill
the powerless, revenge is coming
the breathing silence will soon burst...
