Pain(ted)

This is for MLMM’s photo challenge #322 and also inspired by FOWC: Callous.


Don’t berate the gray girl:

Do not call her loneliness inane.

Do not be callous toward her pain.

Do not invalidate nor try to make

Her feel what she is not feeling;

She has already too long faked.

Certainly do not try to paint

Over her crying, hurting face:

Which is what I hear when you say

“Just cheer up.”
