The mask I wear to keep afloat and hide the pain is starting to break apart causing me to sink. The tears, loneliness, and sadness are starting to leak through. I feel as if I'm starting to drown. Do I tread the water and leave the mask on and wait until it completely crumbles? Do I take it off and expose and drown in the pain and loneliness? Do I hide behind a brand new mask and just start floating again? Then I wonder, why do I need a new mask anyways? Oh yeah, now I remember, I never learned how to swim!
