are you ok?


Why won’t anybody just listen?
Not give an opinion,
or a solution;
just listen.

My smile must be a good guise,
For you to overlook
my tear-stained eyes.
I must have a good poker face,
For it to never occur
that I needed more than just space.

The magic words are not
“Please” and “Thank You”,
nor “I love you”,

But it is when you say:
“Are you okay?”
