Are you okay? Yes I am.. But I wasn't , As I responded to that, Because what else to say, When you aren't, Are you feeling good? Yes I am.. When I wasn't, But how will it help, If I responded for real, Do you need water? Yes I want.. But just shut down, The surrounding chatter, With infinite laughter, I couldn't bear, The noise, Inside me growing larger, Than my voice that was, Shaking my exterior poise, My daughter, Came closer.. As she held my, trembling hand, As she whispered, Mom, it will get better.. My partner, Looked at me, And wanted me to know.. It's okay, Not to be okay, Getting drunk, And throwing up.. Is all part of growing up, Till the part, Where you start loving, Just water again.. My mom and dad, Comforted me,  That although sad as it looks, Things aren't that bad.. As explained by the books, Relationships and people, Are the ones that make you stable, While everything else, Can topple,   Well, there will be loads of trouble, But more than that t

Without You

No I won’t go..
Not without you.
The thunder roars..
Just to scare you.
Fallen trees smear..
The pathway.
No I won’t go..
Not without you.
Give me your hand..
Pull me by your side.
Don’t just lie there..
That ain’t fair.
As the raven crows..
Staring back at you.
No I won’t go..
Not without you.
Kiss me right on my forehead.
Lie to me as your eyes fade away.
Look at me as you ignore..
Get up now I can hear you snore.
No I won’t go..
And this isn’t you.
Cause you always..
Listen when the sun goes down.
While here I am sitting alone wearing your favorite gown.
