Gloomy Sunday ( last call retracted )

I can't help myself;

I can't tell you 

Because I'm

so terribly afraid

that I will impose

upon you the sad

love that you 

may not want

to impose on me


I wish I could call

But I don't want to bother you

I wish you would call me

But you don't even know

I'm still in love with you.


Please tell me if you do.

    If you're sure, call him, you won't be imposing.

  2. no i am terribly afraid of imposing and afraid that i won't get anything at but a few insults hurled in my general direction.

  4. I would still recommend calling him. You're stronger than you think. I'm sure you can handle a few insults, even coming from him. Plus, if he really responds so boorishly, you're probably better off without him anyway.

    Either way, at least you can say you tried and move on. Trust me, you won't regret your decision.

I Can't Hear Your Little Red Rooster

Fright

I call this room Home.

He will not look at me

His eyes flicker with

a speck of violence.



my strained smile,

disgusted by

my pleading eyes.

my veins freeze

icy blood

tearing through coronaries




May Day

'Hope, you don't have to use it on your wedding night.'

She handed the pistol to Hope, right after the vows, right before the reception.

'I'm just kidding, darling. Don't worry. He's a good man. You did well sweetheart. He's a good man. You'll be fine.'

Hope's paper-thin smile tried to grow as she stared at her grandmother's reflection in the mirror. The mother-of-pearl grip sparkled in her grandmother's hand, bathed by the Chapel's cheap buzzing lights.

'There's a bullet for you, just in case.'

Hope had left the gun on the table.

A week earlier, drunk off self-pity, she had taken it out of its case and walked to the kitchen, where she stuck the barrel in her mouth and proceeded to take pictures of herself to send to Ray.

In a rare instance of good fortune, her phone ran out of battery before she could indulge her sense of pithy revenge. She woke up and pried open her tear-salted eyelashes then made sure to delete an…
