The "Lawn"

I'm okay, holding it in
Keeping myself together
Distracted by surroundings
A breeze blowing in the trees
Clouds in the sky, a bright sun
The green grass beneath my feet.

But then I see the faces
People I love, family
Friends, the tears, the memories
Start to flood into my mind
Finding escape through my eyes
Until I can cry no more.
