Hiding Behind a Smile

In the darkness I hide
Pull deeper into myself
Overwhelm blocking light
Suffocating and straining
Weighted down by the stress
I cannot rebel against responsibility
Thus I am strangled by it
In the camp of break-down
I set up my tent
Meant to be temporary
But I feel like I am moving in
Dreaming of simpler times
Those fleeting moments
When worry did not cloud my mind
I long for those days
Like a sugar craving without quenching
I yearn for easy breath
But all that you see
Is the sunshine of the smile
That I hide behind
