As friends

As friends
I would appreciate it if you didn’t belittle me
and my ability to empathize based on my experiences.

It would be nice if you didn’t accuse me of projecting
things I keep locked away in the back of my head.

I understand you’re worried about me,
but some things that matter to you
do not matter to me.

And I would appreciate you not prescribing me
emotions I don’t actually feel.

As friends,
I would appreciate you trying to see me clearly
for I know myself best,
despite the assumption you can see
past my clarity.
