I'm fine

Chapter 1

‘I’m fine’

8 letters,

2 words,

But how many meaning are inside

The fine swoops and curves

My hand etching into

Paper thin skin,

With intentions and purposes

But serving to juxtapose

Saying that ‘I’m fine.’

You think; worn like paper,

Hands calloused and hardened

By the rough edge of a pencil

And a hard day of playing pretend,

Skin not fitting and hanging off

Like it’s two sizes too big.

That I’m crumpled and ripped

Like a page of a book turned

Too quickly for it to catch up

And I’m left running laps

Around stolen words.


‘I’m fine’

2 syllables,

Too many meanings,

Like a golden leaf

Floating on a breath on wind

At the turning point of Autumn,

Trying to persuade yourself

That it’s still July.

Continued- it’s a broken twig

Beneath a booted foot

Caked in mud and refuse,

but picking up the pieces anyway,

Taping them together

And even though

the crevice still remains,

as deep and as obvious

as the day it was made,

you say

‘I’m fine’
