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 Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
