Civil madness

This life she leads
Must present the front
Where nobody
Would ever know
That inside
She screams
And shouts the rage
That she must never show.
So she walks past herself
And does not recognize
This mad THING
This retch
For why is she venting
In this way?
When she is calm about!
For sooth
It must be
Civil madness!

A jotting inspired by an image of the same name and looks at how one is supposed to behave and how one might feel inside

My images and writing are unfiltered or edited. i just shoot the photos, create the pictures and the words come from somewhere inside without much if any thought or consideration.
My desire is that they might effect someone in a positive way…
A footnote… I’ve explored PS with cars…!
