Too Sunny

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-tast-.” Find a word that contains “tast” and use it in your post. Enjoy!


When you asked how I am did you not notice how
My fantastic was a little loud, my smile extra broad?
For I am good at that, a master in fact
Ensuring no discomfort for you or concern
You have enough to consider without me
I will be okay one of these fine days
But for the moment I drown in pretence
Not bringing the world down with me
Leaving it above to circle and carry on
Some might consider me a catastrophe
A volcano bottling up to explode
Though it churns within my very being
I do not have the taste for complaining
Crumbling in self-inflicted isolation
Begging for pain to be seen
Without having to utter a word
