No More Small Talk

I don’t want small talk.

Don’t just tell me you’re fine. Don’t just tell me you’re doing well.

Tell me why you love the colour red. Tell me your biggest fears. Tell me why you love the smell of rain at night. Tell me what your name means. Tell me about the time you laid awake crying all night. Tell me about the time you couldn’t stop laughing with your best friends. Tell me about the people you love. Tell me about the people you miss. Tell me about the people you can’t imagine life without and tell me about the people you wish you’d never met. Tell me your most painful regrets. Tell me what makes you smile when all you want to do is cry. Tell me what gives you hope. Tell me about the time you experienced something that took your breath away. Tell me why you find it hard to trust people. Tell me why you love that movie. Tell me about the memories you’ll never forget and the ones you wish you could. Tell me why you love summers. Tell me who you need when you’re sick. Tell me who you go to for advice. Tell me your favourite quote. Tell me why that song makes you tear up. Tell me what you think about as you drift off to sleep.

Tell me everything.

Don’t just tell me you’re fine.
