One Away

Affix a smile and they’ll think that you’re okay. Maybe she won’t flip out, go crazy on you today. And should you express a feeling- then you forgot your meds. Go on and take your pills. Cure what ails your head. Go to see your doctor, try to talk it out. It’s the past that led you here…that’s what you should talk about. Instead, you smile and talk about now. Desperate to fix the hurt, yet not knowing how.

One bump away, from numbing the pain- One bump away, from a needle in your vein. One moment away, from going insane.
