Falling to bits


Remain calm, smile, keep up the small talk, don't stop

Do better, go there, do that, do this

Do this

Do this


Outside is normal, a clean slate with hidden flaws

Inside is chaos, everything a mess from top to bottom

A shell of false pretence that all is well

Moving from one face to the next dead eyes with a smile

Extreme emotions flooding in sporadically

Can time pause and let me take a breath

Just give me a moment to process everything

To try and tape the pieces of me back together

Before it all comes down falling to bits
