You Shouldn’t Have

“I love you”

A pretty package often delivered without grace

For nobody ever means it the way

They say it

Especially you

You just liked the feeling of giving

Because it made you feel better

How easily you could wrap me

Up in your delicate voice

Put my heart in a box marked “fragile”

(Too heavy for you to lift on your own)

Tie it with ribbons and top it with a shiny bow

A gift to yourself at my own unwilling sacrifice

Made with love and

Other artificial ingredients

You’ll find out later that it came with no receipt

No refunds, returns or exchanges
