Everybody's always so f*cking fine,
When you ask how someone is they say "fine"
It's a reflex, like blinking, not something that you can control
It's a horrible intention, a shattered piece of soul
And we are not always as fine as we seem
Oftentimes we're broken and falling apart at the seams
Everybody's always so f*cking fine,
But maybe that's a word that I should refine
When I say I'm fine,
I mean I'm bruised and battered and crying on the inside
You're one who knows me, don't fall for my pretenses:
When I say I'm fine, just knock down my defenses.
Everybody's always so f*cking fine
But I'm not fine, I need to be held and rocked to sleep at night
I'm hurt and lonely, and broken on the inside
Take my needs and complete them all in stride
Someday when you say you're fine
But you're broken on the inside too
I'll hold your hand and hug you tight
And tell you it will be alright
And I'll hold you and rock you to sleep at night
Because I know:
No one's ever really f*cking fine

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel
