My parents have been
tiptoeing
around me
for the past few days
walking on eggshells
handling me with kid gloves
and all the other cliches I can think of
it's as if I am a tiny bird
they are afraid of crushing
or glass they are afraid of breaking
'How tired are you on a scale of one to ten?'
'Have a good day okay?'
'Be happy.'
Maybe it's working though
because I feel
better
within myself
and really
that's all I want

I like the line "and all the other cliches I can think of". :)

I'm glad you're okay, though tired. The concern of one's parents is generally so heartening. (Though sometimes irritating, when I am in sullen and weary moods... Heh.)

It can be really exhausting being cared about sometimes. I hope you continue to feel better. I'm here to talk if you ever want to.
