In between the waves of pain, and confusion
the building screams of blinding terror.
Underneath the facade of happiness, and tranquillity,
pretending that the exhaustion will soon be over.
The short days, and never-ending
excruciatingly long nights,
that drone on and on, in an endless parade of insanity,
The countless tears that stream down my ravaged face,
and threaten to drown me in their pods of heartache.
The pointless hours of mundane tasks that need to be done,
and absolutely refuse to carry on without my presence.
In between all of those things, you will find me…
