Everything's Fine

Everything's Fine

A Poem by Isabel

You're in love with the all time high.

It's no wonder you started to sink and struggle to survive.

Babe, you've gotta know that this s**t is real.

Feel something damn it; just feel.

 

You're in love with those illusions.

The ones that shoot bullets at your feet.

You don't mind the dancing. You don't mind my gun's heat,

But don't you get it? Don't sweat it.

 

You're in love with your islands and your diamonds, but they don't mean a thing

When you could be with someone who's heart is genuine.

This was all a game to you. I see it now.

This was all that was left of you. An empty cigarette case and I get it now.

 

You're in love with the ocean and you're in love with me.

With a voice like silk, you were so good at pretending.

It's different now. I believe it.

Truth is, I've never bothered to leave it.

 

You're in love with being shallow and not thinking twice.

Honestly, it would've killed you just to play nice.

You were nothing and it meant everything.

You felt nothing and it made sense to me.

 

You're in love with the all time high

Because you hated being so close to the ground.

I had to say goodbye or we would've drowned. 

We left it behind so we wouldn't be pulled down.

 

When you didn't care, neither did I.

We had no time to spare. Everything's fine.

Maria, I'm not sure if I've ever reviewed one of yours, been out of the loop for awhile due to family health issues, but I have to tell you this: Your writing style is disarmingly fresh and refreshingly current, so on point, so real. In reviewing as many writes as I have I often come across poems or lines or snippets of lines that make me think, "Man, I wish I had written that!" This whole piece made me feel as if I was holding hard copy in my hands and reading it instead of my monitor, but two lines pierced through the piece like a shard of glass: "You're in love with those illusions. The ones that shoot bullets at your feet." A priceless piece of writing. I am saving this piece to my library favorites, thank you for sharing it with me, the excellence of the piece is stunning. take care...dan

The flow of your poem feels so relatable to someone I have known in my life. You pick the right words and use them at the right time. You have talent, for I can feel your passion in your poem. Great poem :)

You are right things change and people miss out on amazing people all the time. His loss Maria... he will see that soon enough. He can find all kinds of things for enjoyment and temporary happiness but eventually he is going to miss the love from your heart :)

Haha true. I appreciate the review!
Great write!
I started expecting some broken heart poem after 1 stanza but this is different.
Very honest instead of cute!
I loved your attitude!

"When you didn't care, neither did I.
We had no time to spare. Everything's fine."

Really liked it!
