Sharp Edges

I was lying here, naked & shivering,
under the blanket of a hot summer night.

Ripping layers of me backwards;
I keep wanting right yesterdays
& I can't get past it.

Agony & ecstacy huddled together,
warming each other, but chilling me.

When you asked how I felt,
I laugh nervously and said,
"I'm fine."

Give me a white room, full of white dishes,
& don't come back without shoes on your feet.

Love would be simplicity
if two people need only want the same things.
I want you to understand.

The paradox has sharp edges
like all my broken dishes.

Hiccups! It is so good to see you hear! I know you told me that poetry is a very emotional experience for you. Wow! Wow! Wow!

And the simple "How are you?" and responding fine. When I was doing very bad mentally and therapists and others would start out by saying, "How are you?" I think I would give the socially acceptable thouhts figuring that they know and wishing they wouldn't ask. If someone really wants to know how I am, they will ask more specific questions.

But I really am good at the moment. I did some major venting on a blog somewhere and hope that the adminstrators there don't mind.
By the way, I go by Abby76 elsewhere in case you didn't know.
