Stagnant

Dust it off,
That brain of yours.
Open up your mouth.
Clear away the junk.
Come out of the fog
Say what you really want to say.

But everyone keeps asking how you feel,
Expecting you to say, I’m fine.
And everyone keeps asking,
What you’re going to do,
Expecting you to say,
Well, I have one or two ideas.

But you have none.
You feel numb.
Apathetic.
But that’s not important.

A little gentle deception won’t hurt.
I feel just fine.
Life is good.
I have everything figured out.

I just need you to think that I’m okay,
In order for me to be okay.
