two faces pt. 2

this face
is the
real
one.

worn
tired
exhausted
exasperated

the fake it till you make it
is
dead
to
me.

every shitty experience is displayed on my face.

wrinkles.
heavy bags under my eyes.
eyelids lag.
sadness envelopes
every pore
on my face.

there is no escape
from the pain;
I
feel
it
every
day;
every
moment;

I’m sorry:

the first face is always better than the second face.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
