Ashen White

Ashen White

written by: R.A. Gerritse



No pain, only discomfort,
Just a little pressure,
Nothing I can’t handle —
Ashen white lies
Fooling no one, myself included.
I’m okay, just tired.
So long as I can mask it with a smile,
I’ll be alright.
This is everything I ever wanted.
If that’s not enough,
I have only myself to blame.
Three little words
Shutting the world out,
Locking the pain inside —
I am fine.
