Don’t

He always says to me, “Don’t feel sad, baby”

as if it’s that easy.

*

I don’t like being told what to do.

The stubborn child in me

wakes up when confronted with authority.

I’ll do the opposite, just to spite you.

*

Maybe if he said to me, “Don’t be happy”

I would try desperately hard to be.
