Don't Wife Me

                                DON’T WIFE ME
Don’t make me a wife
Until I say I do
Don’t make me your lover                                                                                                                                                   
Till I say I love you
Don’t ask me to clean your clothes
Until we’re married
Unless you’re sick
Those chores are your wife’s

Don’t compel me to say I love you
If I do not wish to
For I will be lying
And if I say no
Just know that I mean it
And my only expectation
Is your respect for my stand

Don’t make me an enemy
If I do not accept your proposal
For am just being honest
Yet friendship is an alternative
But if you insist on distance
Heartily I shall grant
