Im Fine … Really


I woke up this morning

feeling … not too bad

an improvement, of sorts

from the wild negativity

of the past several days

it felt good to feel good

I thought bad was over

but then they asked me

“How are you doing?”

and my walls went up


just kidding, actually

the walls are always there

I just reinforced them

plugged up the chinks

where light came through


this impenetrable bubble

my Fortress of Fragility

shielding me from … IT

that THING that will eventually



I'm Fine ... Really
