You asked if I was okay
I held my tongue on fine.
There’s been better days.
When people say,
I’m here if you need to talk.
Once it was,
lets take a walk.
Now I’m instantly suspect.
If I tell you,
You mite always see the pain in my eyes.
You don’t want to carry this around inside.
It will push you away!>
but to no avail.
Wait I forgot to take me pills.
I sip from my paper cup.
Then hold it up.
And say the ocean will never fit!
to the tears I’ve cried.
Most of my life.
Though I drew a map on your hand,
you seem to of lost your compass.
against a head wind.
Sailing through the dark emotional clutter
of rotating image boxes,
a float on a metaphorical ocean
In my head.
Playing film of all the secrets
that plague my mind.
I mite show you
