Crack a Joke, or Crack Me Open?

You make a joke

Miles away from funny.

And you manage to do it

Every day.

It blows me away

And not in a good way.


It pushes me away

Until I run away

To pull myself together.

To fight the tears

Invited because

Of what you said

And I can't handle it.


"How to lose weight

In two seconds.

Take two fingers

Then stick them

Down your throat."


It's not a joke.

How can you

See it as one?

Then I run

To where I can work

And feel safe.
