Mr. Contradiction

Mr. Contradiction by Valerie Parente

check on me
keep looking over at me
reference that conversation we had yesterday
wind up by my side every time I try to be alone
and ask me how my day has been like I owe you an update
then after it all
don’t forget to remind me that I’m not worth your time
no matter how much it contradicts the fact
that you continuously make space for me in your life.

– Valerie Parente (7-7-2019)
