• Mikey commented on the post, alibi 7 years, 5 months ago

    There are no excuses for being an absentee friend, unless you no longer want to be friends anymore. If that’s the case, then I won’t hold you here. You can go on without me. But don’t look back and expect me to be […]

  • Mikey commented on the post, sliver 7 years, 5 months ago

    That’s all it takes to make you feel uncomfortable. That’s all it really takes to make you feel pain; for something small and almost imperceptible to change your entire view on life. A sliver.

  • Mikey commented on the post, poster 7 years, 5 months ago

    Our friendship used to be the anti-sentiment of traditional relationships. We used to be the poster-child of modern day, orientation-blind, genderless, limitless friendships. Now we’re nothing but a fading memory.

  • Mikey commented on the post, flip 7 years, 6 months ago

    Things have been turned around. We used to be close. You said things wouldn’t change. That I wasn’t a placeholder. But here we are. And I realize in retrospect that I’ve always known how uneven our relationship has been.

  • Mikey commented on the post, attendant 7 years, 6 months ago

    Be present. Be witness. Be attendant. Give back as much as you are given by another soul. If you cannot or will not, let go.

  • Mikey commented on the post, charms 7 years, 6 months ago

    I’m a sucker. That much I know, but I think I have some resiliency to charms, in general. Hair flips and licked lips I can resist. But have and edge and bring some fire, jeez, I’m all yours.

  • Mikey commented on the post, rainy 7 years, 6 months ago

    Those are when I’m at my best; rainy days. Rainy nights. Rainy drives. Rainy walks.

    Its probably my penchant for being alone that makes the rain what I gravitate towards.

    Well, that’s romanticizing the idea. […]

  • Mikey commented on the post, splash 7 years, 6 months ago

    Impact. The splash from your influence on other people isn’t always under your control, and how much or how little of an impression they can garner from you at a distance isn’t always telling of the truth of your being.

  • Mikey commented on the post, capture 7 years, 6 months ago

    Its not easy to capture all the details of something. Sometimes all that we can hope for is to recall the feelings. The situations. The emotions. Those things are indelible. Those are the nuances that we come to […]

  • Mikey commented on the post, catcher 7 years, 6 months ago

    Someone is always at the short end of the stick, right? Someone is always more invested, has more to lose, yes? When it all rolls downhill, someone is always the catcher.

  • Mikey commented on the post, drifting 7 years, 6 months ago

    Hahaha. Yes, that’s exactly what’s going on. Although “drifting” is probably too gentle a descriptor for it. I’m being left. Plain and simple. New friends, new interests, new pursuits. Nevermind what came before, […]

  • Mikey commented on the post, exquisite 7 years, 6 months ago

    Pain is exquisite. I know that poeple tend to use the term to describe things that are luxurious and rich and opulescent, but no – anyone with money can have those things. Exquisite, uniquely crafted. Rare. There […]

  • Mikey commented on the post, residue 7 years, 6 months ago

    The residue left at the bottom of the glass is 80% backwash or something. At least that’s what a friend used to say. I believe her. And just like that, we got in the habit of not drinking/finishing off other […]

  • Mikey commented on the post, trunk 7 years, 6 months ago

    I carry a lot of baggage. Most of it my own fault, I suppose, but a lot of it is leftover baggage from interacting with other people, from putting too much trust in other people, from having faith in other people […]

  • Mikey commented on the post, fixed 7 years, 6 months ago

    It doesn’t take long for something to break. No matter how much history, investment, care, attention, prudence, or import you put into those things that matter to you most, all it takes is a small shift and it […]

  • Mikey commented on the post, pageant 7 years, 7 months ago

    There’s a pageantry to friendship. There is showmanship and bragging to the components of friends. Its not enough to say you are friends, you must show and prove. Prove. No titles.
