“How Are You?”

“How are you?”

The question kind of stops you. Because you’re okay. Your world is still spinning and you’re still smiling and you’re okay. But them sometimes you’re not okay. Not even one little bit. And you don’t really sleep at night anymore because you’re bed is almost as empty as your arms. And there’s a space on your wall where his photo used to hang. And sometimes you can’t even eat because he’s gone and the sick feeling in your stomach just becomes a permanent part of you. And when you kiss someone new and their body doesn’t feel quite right beneath your wandering hands. And sometimes you cry and you don’t think youll ever stop. But you don’t say that. They don’t want to hear that. So you continue to smile and say “I’m okay.”
