Empty Chairs at Empty Tables

You’re imprisoned in costumes of playing pretend, even your walk is scripted,
The understudy rather than the star of your own show,
you say “it’s alright” when it’s really not
Because staying silent and in the majority is less scary than being outspoken and outcast

You think they don’t hear the sound of your heart breaking if you mask it with the tinkle of forced laughter
Because tears are messy
and smiles are easy

You train yourself to ignore what you cannot see,
Because in the distraction of first impressions you forget that it's millions of tiny details that make up the big picture

For the ones who matter : “ Maybe later, there’s always next time “
You always have time in the future, but never in the present
Because the opinion of someone who doesn’t spare you the time of day matters more than the time of people who give you all of theirs

Right now, what is your because ?
