reasons (It hurts but not that bad)

There must be reasons
that I lay awake
at 5 AM
fuck this
this is stupid

you asked if I was okay
and I wonder what
caused the question
I'm just curious what
brought it to your attention

I hope I didn't joke
about killing myself
don't worry, I won't
because I keep that joke
in the back of my brain
in a small box
tied with a bow
and I present it to
my grandparents at Thanksgiving dinner
just before coffee and dessert

I'm wondering
if everything I've ever said
was a lie
