Fresh Faces

Every answer taken from behind
Every bite taken on the neck
Every name written on the chest
Every look a side glance
Every cheek hard-pressed
Every breath held underneath
Every inch spread on display
Every pause left in between

Every smile was painted on
Every mouth was made to speak
Every tongue was tied in knots
Every back was bent to break
Every sigh was an alarm
Every kiss was a defeat
Every wound was filled with salt
Every heart was forced to beat
