Okay

And you said are you okay
I said I’m fine
you thought I was lying
and you knew I was crying
but you didn’t say a word
not a word
so I shut off the phone
and stood in the shower
yeah you knew I was crying
I’m still crying
and you’re still lying
well the shower is off
and the floor is all wet
I’m sitting on the bathmat
with my hair down my back
I’m still crying
you’re still lying
but maybe we’re lying to each other
not enough liquid in me
to ever reach the ocean
tears and blood and piss and guts
I could pour myself out for days
and you’d say
are you okay
and I’d say I’m fine
you’d know I was lying
maybe you’d be crying
and no one would say a word
and when I was done
all the tears and blood
you’d say
are you okay
and maybe I won’t say
anything back this time
when I’m dead in the ground
and the earth has my shell
well you’ll say are you okay
to the stone on my grave
and maybe I’ll finally say
yes.
