"How are you?", asks everyone you meet.

I answer simply that I'm:

 

"Holding It Together"

It's 'Just a Scratch'.

A little road rash.

But I'm holding it together.

 

Don't mean to bitch,

But I'm 'Slippin' a Stitch'.

I feel I could untether.

 

Won't lose it yet,

But could use a 'Safety Net'.

It's coming apart completely.

 

It's too late.

Broken by fate.

How did it defeat me?
