Fine

If I say it enough,
will it become true?
You broke my heart,
and then walked away.
Don’t worry about me.
I’m fine.
My life collapses
like sand all around me.
One hit after another.
I’m struggling to breathe,
but emotions try to drown me.
Don’t worry about me.
I’m fine.
My traitorous heart
still longs to touch you.
Just hold you close
and relearn to breathe.
One day, I’m sure
I’ll learn to dream again.
I’ll learn to hope and love.
But for now, I think
I’d just like to cry until
the pain I feel
is no longer sore.
But please don’t worry.
I know I can be fine again.
Really, I’m fine again.
I’m fine.

Prompt: Fine
