The wining in my head,

Buzzing as an alarm clock

Tells me,

Hold back the

Salt.

Drip,

Drip,

Down cheeks

Painted sorrows

In a blush.

Mind hammering

Away at the nail

Of my dilemma.

Turned back

Away from Anxiety's 

Pokes and prods. 

The care giver 

Doesn't seem to see 

Me.

But, 

Every other soul

Takes a glance.

For if you sit here

Chewing your lip

To crimson,

There is no doubt you

Will be spotted.
