A Casualty

Regina Puckett


One day all the noises drown me out

And all I had left was this layer of doubt

Until I could no longer discern the truth

Without written testimonies and proof

My innocence left on the side of the road

A casualty of how the world can corrode

I’ll no longer wear my heart on my sleeve

That way no one could watch me as I grieve
