Beautiful Blizzard of Worries

My entire existence
consists of
acquaintances
wearing painted smiles
submerged in my thoughts.

Occasionally,
an outside force disrupts the system
snowing down concerns

My home is made of glass
and I must ensure it’s safety;
If I don’t,
I will collapse.

A masked disturbance
intrudes my conscience:
“trust”.

My whole world
was in their hands,
and carelessly, it
escaped their grip.

A million shattered pieces lie,
abandoned,
as every internal thought spills out.

The shards kiss my skin;
cuts grow,
I acknowledge more harm than good
is being done
recreating what once was my home
out of it’s lifeless shell.

Examining from above
pain is disguised;
a blizzard of worries
appear beautiful in the eyes of others…
like a snow globe.
