Stay Silent

it is over 
the fun depleted -
back down to Earth with a smack -
gravity 
it was always going to bring us to reality 

reality - deny heart and happiness 
emotionally they take up too much room

to keep other people content -
do as they wish 
for love, for peace 
for knowing there is little else that can be afforded 

your well-ordered world could be thrown into chaos 
and for fear of change, opening a wound 
recoil and stay silent.
