Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A poem about the state of my life lately...
I'm okay...

Biggest lie i tell everyday
No one sees the inner fray
The wearing down, the wasting away.

I'm better...

Is it another one of my denials?
Or a facade like one of my smiles?
When will they end, my daily trials?
My tears, could fill a lab, if collected in vials
Hidden and unseen beneath the surface by miles

I'm tired...

Like love, it remains out of my grasp
Like peace, it only lasts within the breadth of a gasp
Like hope, it fades and returns like a relapse
Like joy, I'll never have it until i collapse

I'm sad...

Is an understatement, plain and simple
Like a new hero, it lacks a symbol
As most are blind to its signal
But it is no real riddle
Maybe it can be harnessed, contained inside a crystal
To give to the sightless a new visual

I'm done...

It is an easier path
To fill the bath
Odds are against me, I've done the math
In order to never surrender, I need to find my wrath.
