366 Poems: May 12th, 2016

Feelings

The day I understand

what goes on in my head

is the day I stop crying after he says, “I love you,”

the day I stop laughing after she falls on her face,

the comfort in the words of people I’ve never met,

the coldness in the arms that have held me forever,

the inability to feel safe in my own skin

yet the ability to walk into a room of strangers and say

“I feel fine.”

The day I understand it

is the day I make a billion dollars

only to realize that money

apparently

doesn’t buy happiness.

Oh… but it’s my own head.

Shouldn’t I be able to know I’ve not lost it?
