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

Dressed Up

I dressed up
For a party..
That I won't be going
I messed
The make up
For a party
That I won't be going
I troubled myself
To get ready
But who am I kidding
I fumbled through the drawer
To pick the right color shade
But there's something lacking
I fixed my hair
Like a messy bun
But I couldn't find the hairpins
Why can't I just put on my slippers
For the party..
But everyone will be looking
I can't tell my best friend
That I had a fight earlier
She will tell her friend and I don't know
Who else does her friend talks to
I keep walking in my underwear
But now that I am thinking
I shouldn't overdo
If I want to cry should keep crying
I remembered that I promise to come
For the party..
That I won't be going
Why did I do so
Why couldn't anyone ask me not to do that
Just then my phone had a picture of my friend
She looked drop dead gorgeous
While I looked at the mirror
And seem unconscious
Where did the magic go
I know I can wash off and change
But I went to sleep instead
I called her up
And lied my reasons
For the party
That I won't be going
I came up with three
I blurted them out as they were free
On the other end 
I could sense pity
But I didn't call to sound witty
The lights went dimmer
I wished I looked slimmer
I will eat lesser from tomorrow
I covered up
closed my eyes as
I found myself dressed up
In red
Looking absolutely lean and well fed
Although my wings
Tossed me in circles
I was lost and found with star twinkles
Until my magic unwrapped 
Me asleep deep in a blanket 
Filled with wrinkles..
The dream wasn't bad
So I let it go on with chuckles
At least I had a party
Where I was glad I had dressed up
Even though I hexed up
I wasn't obsessed
To nuances
That leads to obscurity..
