I’m Not Okay

I say I’m okay
Or a simple “I’m fine”
Will always do
But if you really
Knew
You’d know it
Wasn’t really true.
Under my sleeves
Picture painted
All by me.
Colors of red
Shades of white
Criss cross skin.
I can say,
“I’m fine, really.”
But one who truly
Knew
Would know I’m not fine.
I’m not okay.
Battered
Under these sleeves.
