White Lying


I am fine. I say I am fine. I swear I am
but, the truth is that I, I am sick inside-
I am anything but well. I am not fine.
Where what gives birth to thoughts
is confined, disease lies and is spreading,
slow, but in due time, will multiply
and infect my body’s whole mold.
To which this is no savior, no cure,
no medication chances to restore
what infects my very will to fight.
I cannot fight it, deny or hide
from its viciousness, its terminal grip
so in wait I will lie. Lie and smile,
say that I am fine. Swear I am fine.
