battered

the pressure builds and builds.
the weight no longer can be held.
waiting to burst.
longing to let go.

walking on eggshells just to keep a smile on a face.
pretend and give in.
remember to try and smile.

Like a painting on a canvas,
with each stroke, i bend to move the correct way.
Looking pretty and proper.
tainted and frail.

but when it all comes crashing down,
when the strokes go out of line…..
it ends up to be not what you pictured…
having invisioned in your mind,
but seeing the disaster on the page.

it brings you down.
upsets and disheartens you.

your will broken and battered.
your faith no longer upheld.
