Falling Apart

I am sleep-deprived,

and it feels different

inside the bus today;

someone sitting beside me

is quietly disintegrating,

I can tell as tiny shards

of foreign thoughts

sting my weary eyes,

and must be leaving

scarlet ramifications inside,

I try to blink

the pain away, but it stays-

I am worried

that my bloodshot eyes

shall be giving away

someone else’s secrets today!
