Osagioduwa Agbonifo – “Dear Concerned Friend”

Dear Concerned Friend,
I know you are not just curious,
You are confused
How is she feeling?
What happened again?
Why won’t she just talk to me?
Is it that bad?
Whats her own sef, we all have problems?
I know, I am sorry I can’t help you there.
I am sorry I can’t cure your curiosity.
I am sorry I can’t make you feel better,
I am sorry I can’t share.
Why?
 I can’t share because you won’t understand,
I can’t share because you can’t help me heal
I can’t share because I can’t talk about it without flooding my face or making beneath my jaw hurt terribly
I can’t share because you will look at me that way moving forward,
I can’t share because I don’t want to hear it somewhere else with all kinds of modifications,
I cant share for reasons I don’t even know,
I have only learned to heal alone, by myself with myself
I know you just want to help.
I love you for that
You are already helping by sitting still beside me in silence
I will be fine knowing that when its time, when I can, you are there to help me through it
Thank you, friend
Signed
A girl in pains she is yet to unravel
