"Would you mind

not doing

the critique on my life?"

I told her.

 "Would it be

alright

not to do

your

summation

of my

history?

 I'm doing

just fine,

thank you."

I added.

 You have

only your

story.

Stick to it.

Do not

turn

your attention

to mine

with your

hurts,

your confusion,

your frustration

and losses.

 I have

my own

story

and it

is having

its way

with me.

I am interested

in it.

I do not

characterize

my hurts

my frustrations

my confushion

as my losses.

Move from

across

to

beside me.

Share

the view

as I

lift

and turn

the jewels

of my

life

slowly

into

the light.

Be

my friend

in this.
