stifling the day

I hide the emptiness digging a hole in the head, unending pain bury a stiff smile between huffs of breath It's almost a mystery it can almost be unheard the cloud in my eyes, almost curling too imperfect for words I dig this smile into a hole snatched by my last breath as the wound reaches beyond an imperfect heart
