What If Im Not Okay


What if I told you
I’ve got a bruised heart
And my tears always fill in the dents
Would you try to drain out the hurt?
Stab in a syringe and replace it with some illicit drug?
While I would be on the high side, it still damages
Who I am, who I want to be
What if I told you I’m not okay?

What if I told you
Everything aches so badly
Would you listen to what I have to say?
Or tell me to go buy myself a shotgun
And get it over with?
Maybe I should hang myself in my favourite dress
Open up my closet to find exactly what you wanted
What if I told you I’m not okay?

While I can see you crying right next to me
I don’t think you care, because you’re still smiling
Underneath those teary eyes and forced frown
You know nothing is okay

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
