September 19th – Everything’s Fine

Everything’s Fine

So I’ll give you some grand advice
Say some insightful words
Tell a joke to make you laugh
I want to keep you talking
After all
Something’s wrong with me
And this way
I look like I’m okay
I know how to do it now
You like to get on a roll
This way you won’t ask me
How I’m doing
And I’ll never have to tell the truth


July 15th – I Feel Fine

I’m baaaaack–with more depressing poetry, I’m sad to say. Things haven’t really been up around me lately–or at least I always feel like writing when they aren’t rather than when they are… Anyways, at least maybe I can reach out to some people feeling the same around me. This poem is actually about me being sick than anything else.

I Feel Fine

I feel fine
Or at least
I think so
My body feels
All funny
Like it’s all fallen asleep
Though I’m wide awake
Or am for now

I feel fine
I’m moving
I’m breathing
No matter how my body
Likes to spring
Random pains
On every limb
I need to use
Right then

I feel fine
Well, that’s what I’m
Telling you
Because there’s no reason
To mention
How much my body hurts
And how much
It’s affecting
My heart
