He says “Tell me when you’re upset,”
I don’t always tell him,
Instead, I put on loud music when I’m upset,
I sing and I wait for him,
Yet there have been times when he fell asleep while I was upset.
I look at him with hurt while he’s sleeping,
How could he fall asleep while I was crying?
So I ask “Are you really sleeping?”
He responds in his sleep without realizing I was crying,
I just want to lay down and kick him off the bed for sleeping.
Days pass and we laugh at my silliness,
Realizing how silly it is to act like a child instead of telling him that I’m upset,
I’ll always be grateful that he laughs at my silliness,
Grateful that we always sit down afterward and discuss why I was upset,
Proving that it’s good to talk and laugh at the silliness.
