Delicately Broken

“How are you doing?”

Shaky,

Gentle,

Careful

Careful now.

Please don’t speak my name too loud

Your acknowledgement far out of reach

Counting seconds like pulling teeth

Silent sobs wrack this body

That old ache chasing away apathy

But is it really better?

Is it better now?

Are you better?

Are you better now?

Will you excuse me,

I need to go pick up the pieces again
