Mark I. Kirkmeyer


You ask how I am
What should I say?

Tell you what I think
You want to hear?
It will get me through
Another day in the open

Tell the truth?
You might freak out
Lock me down so
I can’t get out

Do I tell you
I feel abandon
Cast aside
Tossed away?

Do I tell you
I’m worthless;
Not worth
the time of day?

Do I tell you
I’m leaving
packed up
to walk away?

Do I tell you
It’s over
end the game
I don’t wanna play
