Hear that cracking,
The crumbling sound?
see those small pile of pebbles
that’s turning into a mountain?
Or The tiny crack that will soon be a canyon?
That is her falling apart.
It has been a long time coming
But she knows the end is soon.
She is keeping her distance,
Away from people
No one can be allowed to see.
For if they see her true self
When the mask finally falls
And the facade ends,
She will never be able to build herself up again.
She has been acting strong for so long,
She saw how people believed it
Till she finally believed it herself.
If that image is torn,
It will never be real again.
She will never be that ever again.
She has chased people away
Till the fall and rise are done,
Till she builds herself to who she was
With better reinforcement so it never happens again.
She can never allow her strength and confidence to waver
For the stakes get higher after every fall.
So leave her alone and let her be,
Turn a blind eye
And pretend you don’t see it
Till she makes her way back to the living again
