Going Through The Motions

Going through the motions
Up and Shower and Dress
Putting on my make up
Yet Inside I feel unrest

I sip my tea In a forgotten mug
I smile, I laugh at people’s jokes
They cannot see behind the smile
tears that threaten me to choke

Headache hammers eyes ablur
A fog appears thick like Vaseline
Information overloaded
I’m screaming at a glaring screen

I respond, I call, I talk and nod
I can’t remember what we’ve said
I walk around like in a dream
I wake each morning feeling dread

Going through the motions
Things that I used to do
Life has shifted, tilted, jolted
I’m seeing things as if they’re new
