All The World's A Stage... - Poem by Emma Barrett

Twisted with guilt;
bleeding more than dry lips-
I’m up to the hilt
In this.

I exist just below the water;
smothering my face like cling film.
Opalescent eyes betraying
my liquid disguise.

I cannot breathe this shallow anymore.
Guilt is growing in my ribcage;
Clawing at my bones -
and dying for a stage.
