Give me one day for me to cry my heart out. A day for me to absorb all the pain your words or actions have caused. A whole day for me to frown and sulk in disappointment. For I am hurting. I am down and aching.
Give me another day for me to process everything that has happened. Another day for me to understand where you are coming from. An entire day for me to comprehend why you were like that and why I am feeling this way. For I am reflecting. I am calm and thinking.
Give me one last day for me to express what I feel. A third day for me to speak up and respond with composure. A full day for us to exchange our insights and thoughts. For I want to hear you out. For you are important. Your clarification is significant.
Give me three days.
Just three days.
It’s always three days.
Then I will be okay. We will be okay.
*I appreciate how you handled this conflict, how you handled me. Thank you.
