I'm Fine


"How are you doing?"

What do you want to hear?

The real answer,

Or the one I've been telling everyone?

"I'm fine. Getting better, thanks."

But, am I?

Does getting better mean crying myself to sleep every night?

Or breaking down every time I see something that reminds me

Of him?

If that's the case, then sure, I'm on the fast track to moved on.

But we all know that's not true.

I'm lonely.

I'm sad

I feel crushed


And just when I think I'm getting better,

I see him again.

And that gut-wrenching

Heart aching



Hits me.

All over again.


"I'm fine. Getting better, thanks."

  • Comment from author about the poem: I wrote this a few days after my breakup last month. I can say now that I am actually fine, and doing better now than I was when I wrote this. I hope you like it! Let me know what you think.

    Thanks HANNAH ~ YES ~ in my experience TIME does heal a crushed SPIRIT and a DAMAGED Heart ~ so i van empathise. And your sad experience does make you wary of MEN, But as I said I only moved on when i was in a new relationship which suited and treated me better ! That is what am praying for you ~ OK ~ Brotherly Hugs ~ BRIAN Please check my Poem today ~ Thanks B.

      Thank you for your prayer, Brian. Ultimately, I have God as my rock and my comforter, I have found my rest in Him. No matter what happens, I have Him on my side. I will definitely check out your work. 🙂

      Hannah, life can be a roller-coaster, one day you are up, the next you are down. But like a pendulum will eventually migrate to the middle, so will your life. You meet somebody else, life is beautiful again, and hopefully will remain so.
