My Fallen Hero

It’s easy to forget

When you look the same

Act the same

Talk the same.

Its easy to pretend

Everything is fine

When nothing has changed.

But everything has changed.

It changes in

Loose clothes

Gaunt cheeks

Muscles that shake

When they used to stand strong.

You smile and tell me you’re fine

But it’s just a lie you tell me,

Tell yourself.

It’s okay,

I will follow your script

But I will be treading on eggshells

So you don’t fall again.
