Pausen

collapsing

my life was a careful construction
designed to reduce the pain
(that comes with life)

i knew it was far from perfect
but i had worked hard for this
and kept working on keeping it all up
every day

did you have to show me
how fragile it was, how in vain?
(i never asked for the truth)

just one gentle poke
and it all collapsed like a house of cards
