I’M FINE

I’M FINE
Is the greatest lie I have ever heard.

FEELINGS
I feel silly (stupid) when you joke
and I don’t feel like joking.
I wish I were more mature,
whatever that means.
Tell me something real.

DRAFT
Fuck off.

DRUGS
The ceiling moves into the wall
the way clouds do the sky.
You make me sick
then you make me cry.

RECOVERY
I think maybe I’ll live in lacy underwear
and on chocolate until we stop spinning.

TELL ME

I can’t articulate well when you rub my back as I’m holding a fork to my mouth
your body is the sun I think you said and I like feeling bright shall
I keep talking and filling your head with nonsense
you give me room and I spill and
I kept talking until sleep took my place
and now we sleep alone in the dark.
