As I lay here
My heart pounds
As if trying to escape my chest

My body shakes
Trying to keep the pain inside

My eyes strain
Trying to keep the tears inside

My teeth dig into my lips
Trying to keep the screams inside

My hands cover my face
Trying to hide the anguish seeping through to the outside

My ears close up
Trying to keep the horrors inside

My feet clench,
My legs tense
But I fail.

In one moment
My carefully constructed walls
My prison crumbles.

My eyes leak tears,
My mouth screams,
My face shows anguish,
My body lashes out in pain,
My legs and feet are released, flailing about,
My ears open up.

I am revealed.
