Confessions of a Rainy Day

is it working?
does your spine not curve
but stand rigid and resolute?
does your voice not waver
but ring throughout a crowd?
does a frown not disguise
that pretty, fluid grin?
tell me if it was worth it
if I didn't just make it worse
sink deeper into the numbness
tell me if you feel alive
or if you barely manage an open eye
to watch your own back
is it working?
therapeutic syllables mean nothing
when you can't hear them
see them
taste them
it's just a soft background static
easy to ignore
I thought I made it better
guess not because apparently
you're teetering on the last precipice
of your sanity
I fall asleep
