When You Ask Whether I Am Okay - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when you ask that question
many things come into my mind too

'are you okay? ' such strikes my mind
and i retort
with 'why do you ask? '

we live in a mirror world
we project

who we are
what we are
where are we going?

your loneliness mirrors
you reflect light
to my mirror

i like to shine like diamond
but i am not

i am dawn fading
and the day does not recognize me
