Beneath the surface

Beneath the surface

Black thoughts and personal troubles
Manifest in toxic floating bubbles .
Elaborate walls are built .
Jovial fronts bury guilt .
Seeping through the soul like silt.

It will never be known if its a common situation .
There's no one to tell
It has to be contained within the self 
-And that cannot be good for mental health.

It could lead to an explosion , Upon exposure....
