Denial

My eyes are wet, my mind is numb, But why, I cannot say. Silent screams drown out the sound, Of my memory of that day.

I crumple up, fall to the ground, And will myself to die. But still, the truth just laughs at me, And looks me in the eye.

I breathe in pain I cannot feel, I exhale all my past. I draw a breath, wishing that, This breath would be my last.

I close my eyes, denial is sweet, And that's when I decide, I'll have to just deceive myself, And in my dreams reside.

I walk along without a care, But that is only because, In my mind, it didn't happen, Therefore, it never was.
