“I’m ok” Exclaims a volatile tone
“Are you sure?” Asks a pathetically sympathetic taunt
“Really” bluntly slammed with a thousand tons of repression, beneath the thinnest veil of politeness
“You don’t sound ok” projects a mockingly failed attempt to grasp the meaning of ‘Ok’
“Really” carrying an awkwardly prolonged pause “I’m…. OK”
“Do you want to talk about anything?” continues the draggingly torturous vocal exchange
“Hath not you heard my TONE” An elevation of angst to weight the words with fury
“I have, and I think you need to talk to someone about your anger” offering gently a hand of peace
“You REALLY want to know what’s wrong” rageful voice subdued to subtle menace
“Yes, let me know” sitting so slow as if in fear of a reaction to sudden movement
“Ok, where to begin”…..
(Ten minutes later)
“ARHHHHGGGGHHHHHHHH” and breathe “ARRGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH” gently rocking to and fro
“As I said, I’m ok”
Between the O and K of that weighty word lies a lot
Make sure you’re ready to take it on before pushing!
