Happy It’s Not Just Her

She would act
so graciously surprised
when someone
complimented her,
and I always thought
it was because
her self esteem
had been thrown
to the rocks below.

The more time crept on,
the more I saw
it was simple
excited empathy.

Like when you
meet someone
with the same
favorite band.
