Lapse Back Into Me

There are times when I pretend to be someone else.

Where I am full of Love,


And joy.

Without a care in the world.

Always a smile on my face.

But then I lapse back into me.

Where everything

Is bleak and distorted.

All my efforts are thwarted.

I can not find peace in my soul.

I sit in the dark late at night and cry.

For which I do not know why.

I have lapsed back into me.

A place Where I can never be happy.

Where did that other person go?

Where is the mask I used to hide?

I have to hide,

For I don't want the world to see.

To see the pathetic being that is me.

I lapse back into me.
