Cringe.

Cheekbones are highlighted,

toe nails newly polished.

Small glimmer of a memory,

although vague,

Pulls every string.

Tugging suit of self esteem loose.

 

Falling for that instance,

ripping the joy out of grasp.

Forcing every reaction to spell doom.

 

Just as quickly armour is replaced.

Smile is repainted.

Anxiety has no place to dwell here any more.

It will be expelled,

cast out,

until that next slip of thought.
