Teach life not just math.
When you dig your own grave
There is nothing left for me to do but silently stand next to those you have left weeping
Pray a prayer for you
And bring you flowers
On days I miss you
I will not tell them anything but what is true
They will be shocked how many secrets were inside of you
How much overlapping
They will say: you knew him so well
I will smile and say: not nearly well or soon enough.
The first time you are asked
You will say “yes”
Good girls say yes
And cry and scream
You are still a good girl if you take your time
If you don’t cry
Even if you say no
The first time you are asked is only significant if it is
He may not be your person
Might just be the first to ask
Which is special and lovely
But you get to decide
Yes is not implied.
