How Are You?

How can I express the distress I feel
when asked this question?
How do I say that I’m miserable
and want to end my life?

What can I say so I don’t
concern or scare you?
What do you really want to hear?
What are you asking me?

Instead of taking time to over-analyze
and let you empathize, I’ll just reply:
I’m fine…
How are you?
