straw

I’m not going to take him back this time. My bags are packed and I sold my old car and I’m going back home. The bruise is no longer swelling, but it’s hot to the touch and I can’t see all the well. I can’t let this go any further.

luggage

It’s purple polka dotted over white canvas, can’t miss it. I feel the little under 50lb weight dragging behind me, rolling over small hills and getting stuck in sidewalk cracks. I can’t remember what is was like, being free.

hearing

I’d wish you’d stop fidgeting. Stop pulling threads on the bottom of the suit jacket. The judge is staring you down and he knows you’re lying. He knows you’re lying.

entrée

So I’m seated now, looking over this menu, glancing back to make quick peaks at the other full tables. I am the only one dining alone. I will order an appetizer, an entrée, and maybe even dessert. And then I will leave this place full of people to my empty house, to be by myself.

Alone. Alone. Alone.

puddle

There is mud on the bottom of my jeans and raindrops seeping into the seams of my t-shirt but I can barely feel it now. I’m standing ankle deep in deception, watching you move the lamps into boxes and onto the truck; a new life beginning – for you, without me.

mist

And into the mist we went, brave and tall-backed warriors. There was no fear in our eyes, even as our hearts beat irregularly – adrenaline rushing through our veins.

There was no place for hesitation in this place of the gods.

bow

I took that final bow a long time ago, but the show isn’t over yet. ‘Encore!’ they cry. ‘More!’ they plead.

Look at my bones. They are old and ruined and cracked with time. I have nothing more to give you. I gave my final bow.

train

Choo choo, baby. She’s a’comin’.

Faster than you can ride across two slats of metal, a roaring engine in chugging its way down the tracks and she don’t stop for nobody. I want to be that train. I want to watch somebody cross my tracks and I’m gonna blow my horn and tear them in two – 70mph steel and anger.

Try and cross me again.

crew

You come with me wherever I go. You’re my back up, my second in charge. Facing the world with nothing but what I have in my heart and what I think in my head. You’ll always be with my – my homies, my crew.

hysterical

Oh gee, you are too fucking funny. Like, I’m grasping my sides and gasping for breath. The look on your face, oh wow! I don’t think I’ve ever laughed this hard in my life. The pain in your face right now, the one you feel because I took everything you ever loved like you did to me so long ago.

Sweet revenge, I’m savoring every moment.

severe

The look in your eyes when I’ve disappointed you. It goes right through me and skims over the top of my soul like luggage in the x-ray conveyor. Your brow crinkles and I feel tears well up behind closed eyelids. Please, it’s too much.

bookshelf

You’ve been my oldest friend, tall and looming from the corners of my room. You hold my greatest treasures and my earliest memories. You carry my every adventure from this cold reality to the sweetest of my escapes.

alumni

They are the ones that come before us.

Those who have made it past, those who survived the struggle
those who somehow
managed to make it
and those who
give us hope

that we will make it too.
