Feel Up

“I feel quite down.”
My best friend said wearing a frown
So I fixed up a coffee cup
Then I told him “ try to feel up!”

Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?

How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Last few words: 
I got the idea for this poem form shel Silverstein’s falling up.
Editing stage: 

Comments

Telling a person who is feeling down is like telling someone to grow back a leg.

Unless it was a lewd suggestion [grins]

Then again perhaps there is something zen here.
Did you sit quietly before him, patiently repairing a broken cup, in the process enhancing its beauty with its flaws?

cheers,
Jess
