Sometimes I wish things weren't so awkward now
because I've read that reply probably three times today
and every time I do I adopt this sloppy half-smile
especially when I read the lines
I care about you, and will do anything to get you happy again.
Just tell me what you need
.
The rest of it is kind of harsh,
but coming from (I hesitate, not knowing which pronoun to use)
(compromise –((him/you))
it makes complete and perfect sense.
So I thank (him/you) with complete silence,
with my half-smile
and my lighter look at things.
