You can bury it, push it down until you feel the hurt won’t threaten to break you.
Press it down by keeping busy, busy, busy on top.
Roadblock silence by pushing your earphones in.
Post filtered pictures of a wonderful facade.
Put that nose to the grindstone, late hours and weekends, getting after it.
Numb it, sniff or shoot whatever fix you can get.
Place everyone else’s problems as your priority.
Keep that smile ready for when someone checks in on you.
Still, the heart will not be silent.
But, He’ll never let you go.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
