She said she’s fine

She looked utterly distressed
Something going on in her head
Certainly she wasn’t herself

I asked her,”Baby are you okay?”
She turned and looked my way
Like something she wanted to say

With an absent mind and a straight face
She said a cold, plain emotionless ”Yes”
Bit her lower lip but remained motionless

”Is anything wrong?,” I asked worried
”I’m fine!,” she sighed and said slowly
But her eyes told a different story

Something was actually disturbing her
She wasn’t jovial and smiling as usual
I waited because she said she was fine!
