Walking down the street, you encounter a folded piece of paper on the sidewalk. You pick it up and read it and immediately, your life has changed. Describe this experience.
The sky was a piercing sword grey and threatened to burst into tears at any moment. The weather likes to mimic me and my mood was dark when I happened upon a piece of paper. I opened it and it healed me. It said GOODBYE! When people don’t say goodbye the silence screams,
“YOU ARE NOT WORTH THAT ONE SIMPLE WORD”
There are lots of reasons to take a break from someone but, in my opinion, there is no excuse for simply disappearing. Well unless you have a stalker and you fear for your life and then I think it is probably ok… cause… scary.
I can’t imagine this happens in real life. People don’t just hang out with you, care about you, love you and WHAM disappear.
OF COURSE THEY DO! It happens all the time. Think back to all those people who just kind of left without an explanation. I think everyone is probably guilty of it but it hurts when it happens whether the person it happens to admits it or not. Shame on you, on me, for being this socially careless.
I had a friend once say, “That is their prerogative”. Never had truer words been said. Well maybe lots of truer things have been said but, in that moment, it was the hard truth.
But here is what I don’t get… why?
A truth: I share too much and I need to learn who can handle it and who can’t. I should change this about myself…or I guess I should just get used to people treating me like a monster and running away screaming without goodbye! BOO!
Another truth: people have a hard time stepping into other peoples shoes…no matter how much they themselves get judged they will in turn judge others just as harshly once their values are stepped on. If this happens goodbye is the most respectful answer.
This poem is a bit sarcastic…it was too hard to be serious because…well…it just was…take my word for it…because you don’t have any other choice than to believe me….cause…I’m the Author. This is what I imagine those who disappear are REALLY saying… THIS is what the silence screams at me.
I love you but you suck
I’m sorry for this, truly
But you’re too toxic
And not worth my time
I hate seeing you hurt
Because it hurts me too
So here, let me disappear
It will be better this way
For me more than you
But life is brutal, it’s true
Thanks for the memories
For the moments of love
Thanks for the sacrifice
Of your precious time
I’ll never forget you
Just remember I love you
BUT YOU TOTALLY SUCK
