Under the rose

rose bush behind a fence





You talk in confidence with a
friend and he (or she) responds
to what you say by dismiss your
concerns and explain to you, you
are not desirable enough – at
your age (or whatever…), or
you’re not good enough to be…
(whatever can be…)

But what a bad surprise for you!
Because that was not the content
in what you had told your friend
and neither the response you’d
expected – you had simply felt
troubled and concerned and you
wanted to have a talk “sub rosa”
only to ease your mind

And your friend certainly solved
you from your concerns, because
you’re not troubled anymore, but
now you feel useless and hurt and
unattractive and sad instead – and
you don’t like your friend so much
