She doesn’t want you to tell her that
“There’s nothing to worry about!”
Because she’s trying to heal her wounds,
Not live in self-ignorance.
She doesn’t want you to say
“Things could always be worse.”
Because this is pain greater
Than you even can comprehend.
She doesn’t want you to make up that she’s
“Sad without a reason!”
Because those are four words
That cause so much agony to people every day.
