Small Talk- Poem

10. If you ask me how I am,

I may answer honestly.

 

9. If you ask me how I am,

my smile will be plastered on;

full and fake.

 

8. If you ask me how I am,

I may not believe you mean it anymore.

 

7. If you ask me how I am,

I will give you one word.

 

6. If you ask me how I am,

I’ll walk away.

 

5. If you ask me how I am,

my body will crumble;

as will the walls around my mind.

 

4. If you ask me how I am,

you will get nothing, I am blank,

no emotion.

 

3. If you ask me how I am,

I will scream and run and hide and cry

until my heart and lungs are about to burst

 

2. If you ask me how I am,

I will go home and take the pills out of the cabinet.

 

1. If you ask me how I am,

silence.

 

Don’t ask me how I am,

Because 7. I’m fine.
