A Phone Call
I never thought I would have a connection with you.
You always seemed distant and cold.
Always wanting to talk about
Work or school.
Mostly about the future.
But when you were concerned about me
and we talked about how you were effected by a mental illness
And you were proud of me for talking about it
Naming it for what it is.
Because when you name it
It loses its power over you.
I just hope you realize that.
