Off-white

I don’t do well with subtleties
I can’t be halfway through
I can’t fake smiles or stay calm
There are no mellow hues
There’s nothing placid about me
My storm brings a hurricane
Without an eye for it to die
My face is a blank slate
My eyes screaming vacant
I’ve lived a hundred battles
I’ve died a thousand times
I won’t forsake your freedom
My love for you shall strive.
Amidst my bellowing tears
Your aching memories cry
My feet, now stone, have crumbled
My heart will never die
