"fine" is a lie.

The simplest of questions,

A harmless “how are you?”

Warrants not a simple answer,

As “fine” is never true.

Behind the eyes of those who say,

Such undeniably blatant lies,

Their thoughts into the darkness fade,

Away from human judgment hides.

It seems we fear to show the truth,

Of our secret states of mind,

We keep away from others ruth,

Our emotions left behind.

    1. Its an interesting topic so i would imagine there are a good few poems on the subject. It is after all almost impossible not to notice how often we hear each other claim we are fine when the true emotions are much more complex. thanks for the comment.
