Ole Vincent in my feature image has that look in his eye. Is it genius or edge of insanity or perhaps both? I was this many years old when I learned two things can be true at the same time. Actually, I knew that before today but the lesson doesn’t want to stick. Absolutes are rarely true but I’m uncomfortable with the gray.
Another lesson I’ve learned this past week is that I’m not the sun & the world doesn’t revolve around me. Same in that I already knew that, but the lesson is not sticking. I’m waiting for a fantasy that will never come true. I need to take the hint and go. I can’t make someone act the way I want them to & even if I could, would I want their pity inclusion? Nope, I would not. I don’t want to be some desperate person. Though I am desperate dammit. I just don’t want to be seen that way. I want to be loved because I’m loveable, not because of some obligation. And right now even their obligation is falling short.
I’m getting there folks, to the roll call. But before I do that, let me just say for anyone who stumbles across this post, silence it torture. Say fuck off, don’t string people along ever for any one. Silence is not polite, it is not kind. Silence means instead that you’re not even worth of acknowledgment. And from personal experience that sucks. Don’t do that to your fellow human being. Pretty sure your momma raised you better than that.
