It is difficult when you are always lying,
And trying to mask the way you really feel.
You have lost sight of what is true,
And forgot what is real.
It is difficult to pretend you are happy,
When you are afraid someone may ask.
It gets harder each day,
It is proving to be quite a task.
You struggle when your body starts to shake,
It is looking for something to hold.
Even though it is hot outside,
Your heart and mind feel cold.
You can feel your throat closing,
Your legs feel like they are very weak.
You attempt all you can to catch a breath,
But you cannot find any words to speak.
You scream as the world starts to spin,
And collapse on the ground.
Suddenly, you realise in that moment
You are experiencing another breakdown.
