I dazzle, even with my eyes closed

Mermaid 3 - Copy

by Amanda Tan

I let him have me
four years longer
than intended
because he said
“you need therapy”
four months in.
It takes courage
to tell your partner
she’s fucked up,
not her fault,
you can’t help,
but a therapist
can. That’s when
I said “I love you”
and tried to mean it.
