What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith

Everything is not okay
Even though I say it's okay
I know I say it every day
But I won't say it today

Everything isn't fine
Everything is on the line
I'll fall asleep from the pain
And never wake again

Everything is not alright
I can't fall asleep tonight
I need someone to listen to me
Understand I'm going crazy

Everything is not perfect
Life is sharp, I can't curve it
I'm a damsel in distress
Doesn't help that I'm a mess

Everything would be okay
If I could find words to say
I could speak them every day
I just can't find them today

Everything would be fine
If I stepped off of the line
I could fall into sleep
Wake up from a pleasant dream

Everything would be alright
I would fall asleep at night
If someone would listen to me
Understand I'm not crazy

Everything could be perfect
If I found a way to curve it
I'd be rescued from distress
And clean up all my mess

If you find this very confusing
The understanding battle is losing
If it's too much for you to take
Close your eyes and take a break

I don’t expect too much from you
Or you do know what I've been through
Just by wishing myself on a star
I've barely gotten this far

So let's take stock of the situation
And if there's any precipitation
If there's not we'll talk a walk
So little time for us too talk

Everything is not okay
But soon I think I'll be okay
Get me rainbow for today
Everything will be okay
