My Bubble

My Bubble


I'm living in a bubble,
and It isn't very nice,
sitting here alone
with my heart as cold as ice.


So many people round me
Think they know just how I feel.
But no matter what they think,
my life is so unreal.


"You're cured now" They all tell me
"You've been so brave" and yet
I sit here in my bubble
trying to forget!


I didn't feel too scared.
I didn't feel that ill,
It's now I've learned to dread
as I start to climb the hill.


The hill towards normality
whatever that might be.
So I'll stay here in my bubble
and keep up the search for  'me'.
