I have recently
Found it difficult
To console
My friends
When they are depressed
I am too jealous
Of how they let their
Emotions show
When all I can do
Is smile
And pretend that I am in my own little bubble
Of happiness
I pretend
That this bubble of mine is impenetrable
That it is glass
So that when my friend’s bubble pops
I retreat further into mine
As I am reminded that my bubble
Is nothing but
But even more so
I fear
That I cannot pop
The bubble I created
I am trapped
Until someone
Sees that it is only fake
And bursts it for me
