Take a deep breath, remember to breathe
No I don't want to hide it's time to let them see
Open my mouth let it fall like rain
Wash away the tears and all the pain
Pause for a reaction, pray they understand
Feel the weight of fear holding your hand
Anticipated knife wounds they plunge into your soul
But you can't back down don't let the pain show
A minute of conversation and the topic is dropped
You feel your heart sinking like a rock
Let out the air, alone you can breathe
Try to find a sense of calm and relief
Their footsteps retreat and your smile falls away
You'll just have to make them understand you another day.
Thanks for stopping by!
