River Dams

Lies creep off tongues so innocently

Denying facts known down to your toes

Behind blank eyes and a placid smile

Why admit you’re sad when you could lie about it?

Not get dependent on some chick about it.

Because worse than being sad is telling you’re sad and nobody caring.

Calling you attention whore drama queen

When your insides are screaming KILL YOURSELF and you had the nerve to make a big deal of nothing

If you keep crying they’ll give you something to cry about

So you stop crying and you start your monotone journey of yes I’m fine and no you’re mistaken that’s simply my resting bitch face and allergies.

Masks held high

At attention at all times

You hope you never crack and when you think you will you run to hide the rivers you’ve been damming with lies.
