The overload

So much space between us that everything

seems so unreal as time goes on.

And I’m left empty-handed and the longer

this goes on the longer I fall apart.

But every time I see you I try to put on a brave face

and stand straight and put a smile on my face.

And hide the tears that are threatening to come out and

play out the truth that I’m not as strong as you think I am

in this situation.
