On The Edge

Standing on the edge of normalcy,

With the perfect smile, and the perfect words.

Don’t look too long, don’t ask too much,

Look away, and pretend you don’t see the secrets there.

 

Waltz blissfully along, and laugh at the jokes,

With the perfect smile, and the perfect words.

Grin a little wider, don’t frown too much,

Don’t question all.

 

Smile a little wider,

Wear the perfect dress, and the perfect crown.

Don’t fail. Don’t fall. Don’t cry. Don’t call.

Be the friend that’s perfectly calm.

 

Stand on the edge of normalcy,

Glaze the mask, and shine the crown.

Send a smirk to the murmurs,

Quirk a brow for the others,

Don’t fail. Don’t fall. Don’t cry. Don’t call.

 

K.N.O.W.
