How are you

Treading water in a tsunami,

closing your eyes

and singing

like that changes anything at all

Its here you’ll meet your other self,

the one whose expression won’t change

while your insides are being skinned,

whose tone remains even

whilst your face is stomped on by heeled boots.

This valour will go unnoticed,

though alienation can be a blessing.

You might be empty right now

but you will remain

you may not be able to feel

but it will transpire through you

you may not be able to cry or laugh

but strength is your constant

there’s no happy ending here

but there’s no ending either
