You never really realize

How fragile your own little

Bubble of a world is,

All the rainbow prism colors

Dancing about the edges of your vision,

Until something comes along

And pops it with a loud

Smack!

And leaves you stranded

Somewhere you've never been

A place where you can only be

Afraid, of what can happen next.

-----

Someone just popped my bubble

Quite painfully

(You don't really want to know, I'm just writing this
So that it may be noted
That I am different now;
World, I hope you're laughing now
That someone so happy
Has been turned so desperate
Good for you.)
