I'm Fine, Really

I’m fine, really

  The tears that fill my eyes--

     They are nothing


I’m fine, really

  The tremors that shake my body

     I just need something to eat


I’m fine, really

  The screams that rip out of my lungs

     They are forever silent


Still you ask… again and again

  Do you even want to know?

     You seem to easily accept my lie


The truth is, I’m not fine

  Not today, not tomorrow

     But you never make the effort to find the true state of my mind
