Dentist's Appointment

Whenever you give me a cavity

It truly lingers, the aching sensation

The feeling augmented by the need

To act normally

As if I never got that cavity in the first place

But maybe, if I can recover my composure

I can get it filled

Get this miserable void filled

If I go back to him, I can cover it up

So I'm going back to him now

And no one will suspect a thing
