and that was that

7 Jun

he didn’t really want to wear that hat

he’d said that before and didn’t care to repeat

he didn’t want to put on airs and wear a beret

he didn’t want to play

and that was that

she didn’t want to go to the fair that day

she had hoped it would rain

so she could stay inside and write ‘Dear Diary’

but everyone was becoming so very impatient

she didn’t want to play

and that was that

I didn’t want to get out of bed

it felt so soft and I am so in need of gentleness

but obligations nip at my heel and bark their demands

I didn’t want to cause a fuss, and yet

I’d thought after so many years it would better

I didn’t want to play, but play I did

perhaps there was more to say but

I didn’t care to say it

and that was that
