Ring True

The music floods,
The noises take hold,
The words ring true and touch my heart,
And i try harder,
Each time,
Not to break down,
To place at bay the tears,
I look away,
And convince myself that everything’s ok,
But somewhere up there,
In the closed space inside my head,
I feel my facade dissipate,
I watch as the floodgates make haste,
And pray,
That in all this,
I do not make a sound.
