A Bad Expression

The expression
a sick mind
strikes me
as quite unkind.
It implies one
that is perverted.
Instead of one
which has been diverted.
When someone
breaks their arm
there is no
reason for alarm.
Yet when they hear
of a mind that is broken,
they hold their breath
and wait for an explosion.
Looking normal
on the outside
while a battle
rages on the inside.
Trying to hide
that you are unwell
only adds up
to a living hell.
Just because
it cannot be seen
does not mean
it is all a dream.
