Everything is Fine

It seeps like truth to your consciousness,

But it doesn't enlighten; it only destroys

All that is left of your faithfulness,

Your reason and well-crafted poise.

.

The thunder leaves trembling in its wake,

As our breaths are separated one by one:

A pebble thrown, a million ripples in a lake –

Skimming stones used to be fun.

.

I remain stoic in the eye of the hurricane,

As my imaginings trickle around me,

Gradually dripping like autumn rain

And the calm that flows through my psyche.

.

Tears run ruined tracks down a withered face

And I tightly grip a wrinkled hand;

With weakness I run a tightly won race,

Reaching breathless for the shore of dry land.

.

But the beach there is the victim of time;

It slips through my fingers with each grain of sand.

She says she's sorry like it was her crime –

I say it's fine and pretend I understand.

.

And the waves they tug at my shore,

Disintegrating the sand forts built in vain.

The liquid whispers what it did before;

It went and will return as rain.

.

I take deep breaths and order my mind –

Stand my emotions up in a line.

To the question I am all but blind,

I have my response: Everything is fine.

...

I promise.
