Hide

a droplet of liquid
pushes itself from me
no not now
not yet
hold it back
don't let them see
hide

cruel faces
masks grimacing and jeering
push me away
I do not belong
not yet
not ever
hide

my distorted reflection
drowned by tears
no no no
not yet
cannot cry
I'm not that weak
hide

a droplet of liquid
pushes itself from me
crimson flowing
from wrists
not eyes
finally no more
no more hiding

cry
