Bursting the Bubble

they did not realise
that i could see them
that i knew who they were
and that i could predict
every mood change
and every dip
every sea change
and finally, our sinking ship
i knew i would be in trouble
the moment i gave up on the pretend
burst our bubble
and broke that prevailing wind
they did not realise
that i knew the truth
that i could see them
as they clung to an impossible truth
and most of all
i could see every crack inside
every haunted insecurity
which they tried in vain to fight
