I’m not proud of

With loving sincerity

Because the last thing

I need

Is you laughing

In my face

Or reminding me

That at one point in time

I’ve failed

I don’t care who you are

A friend

A lover

A family member

If you bring up my failures

With a smile on your face

Just for today

I’ll allow myself

Just for today,

I hate you.
