Ash

The days blend together

The nights lonely 

No solace offered

Time dragging on

 

Paste on a smile

So no one is uncomfortable

Go through the motions

What else is there to do

 

You try to tell them

But instead of listening

They tell you cheer up

You have everything

 

No reason to be sad

No reason to drown

No reason to make

Everyone else feel down

 

It’s all lip service

No one wants to know

What happens inside

The confines of your mind

 

Though they ask 

Over and over

Are you ok?

What can I do?

 

I am not sure

How else to say it

I am not ok

I am never ok

 

Maybe there is nothing

You can do 

But let me burn

To ash
