It's not the silent scream that scares me
It's the gasp my body makes after
Bailey Mar 17
I'm not sure if pain is the right word
Maybe guilt is more accurate

When the daydream goes grey
And the white smile screams

Shaky fingers
Sweaty palms
Ice cold feet
Speeding pulse
Weak knees
Scary thoughts

Then the daydream leaves
To welcome me home

White space stairs back at me
And then I see the box of lost and found

Beaten and battered
I look inside the dusty box of lost
And wonder if my found is inside

Turns out
The box is empty

I try and take a deep breath

As all my warning signs go off
