How Are You Really?

How Are You Really?

A Poem by ellemorell

I can not bear these bones she said
I can not lift theses bones of lead
Oh how I dread to rise from bed
And carry all this weight again

When I wake my mind I beg
To wait for me to catch my head
These thoughts are taking all my breath
The oxygen can’t reach my legs

On concrete feet I traipse away
I drag them while I work and play
When people ask I smile and say
I’m well thanks how are you today?

i have been there, elle...and know what it is like to put on that pretend because we just don't want to go there, we don't want to let on...we hope it will ease up...but often it just persists and imprisons us.
