If And When

If and
when
you decide
to leave
me, please
dictate
what else
you
may require
of me as
I pack
your bags.

Also,
if and
when you
decide
to lay next
to me
out of pity
or shame,
please
make room
for my ego,
foresight,
and wisdom
to ruffle
the sheets.

Lastly,
if and
when you
decide
to love
me like
I want, make
sure
you take
the
road
less traveled
since
I’ll be
quietly
making strides
like
Zeus did
for Aphrodite.
