Poem #5 – Swallow

I wrote this one about something many of us do without realising, and something that I am personal guilty of. It has taken me a long time to realise that burying pain deep below is not a healthy way to process emotions, and often makes things far worse further down the line. Whilst this poem may sound as though I am telling the reader to do exactly that, it is meant to be from the perspective of my own mind telling me to swallow my thoughts before they become too much for me to handle. 

swallow it, bury it
cloak it in the smile
you wear so well
grasp the mask
evade all hell
swallow it, bury it
let it surface
some future day
