People always complain when you’re writing about sad things. When each poem and story ends on a heartbreaking note, they start to wonder what’s wrong with you.

do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze

mostly because they can’t handle their own.
but you will never be
and have never been
