Slow Motion

I am living my life

in slow motion

treating my loved ones

with a lack of devotion.

The signals that I am

emitting are obvious

and my motives

are all too dubious.

For how much longer

can I show this face

without them realising

I don’t want to be in this place.

They deserve

a whole lot better

then just a bit part

in this tragic operetta.

What would be the point

in telling them the truth

when I would be

the only one it would sooth.

Instead it is best if I keep

going through the motions

and live my life without

revealing my true emotions.
