As close as it gets-

As close as it gets-

For some,
It takes the form of,
a cup of black coffee,
Drowning in its scintillating,
Effect.
Knowing,
Without a doubt,
Today will be okay.

The act of,
Staring at the face,
Looking back from the glass,
And re-affirming the statement,
Today, I can.

For some,
It takes-
a little more tears,
A lot more prayer,
An occasional day off,
To feel slightly better.

And sometimes,
Putting on a mask,
Which looks like a smiley,
And says the words “I’m fine”,
Is as close as it gets.

  1. This sounds like a rough day. We all have them I guess. Some more than others.
    I’ve written about masks before myself Ameena. Some people wear them continually.
    Hope you’re having a nice day.
    🙂 ❤
