Poetry: “I’m Fine”

The emotions in her stomach,

Urged themselves awry.

Leaping upward and sideways,

Escaping her belly,

Through the exit of her mouth.

But, the words she uttered,

Were all too similar,

To the ritual tide of the sea,

“I’m fine,” her lips quivered,

As she turned and swallowed her grief.
