I’m Fine

I’m drenched and sodden

Soul weeping

The wound

The grief

Nothing is right

I’m fine, really

Maybe the shaking is fear

Sadness rumbling

I delay eating

An odd and old form of

Self punishment

Maybe this time I can just stop

Needing so much

Love

Nutrients

Sunshine

Shed the fat

Shed the fear

Shed the shackles

Lean and unafraid

Maybe I could be loved better

Love better

Maybe I could be okay

Maybe I could be good enough

Someday

I plant seeds daily

Affirmations

Hope

Desolately resolute

To remain

Reluctant appetite

Incessant

Demanding

Want want want

Always lacking

There’s never enough time

Not enough food

Not enough love

Until there’s too much of everything

I’m cold and hot and lost

I’m courageous and bold and caught

Take my hand

Once

Knuckles sliding down my cheek

Thumb away the final tear

Speak

Tell me I’m fine

So I can be okay
