Stall'd Tears

Into the bathroom 
and close the stall door
Go to the corner 
and sink to the floor
 put in the earphones, 
don't care who hears
Breathe slow, close eyes,
 shake off those fears
Pull on the sweater 
and just hug real tight
Rest on these knees 
until all is set right
Get courage to stand 
and open the stall
Leave as if nothing
had happened at all
