Valentine's Series: Day Six: Falling Pearls


I’m not going to sit around and act like some love sick puppy trying to make you believe the truth. Because it seems, the truth? You can’t handle the truth.

I was okay with you talking on top of your voice. Dragging me to rugby games I never really liked. I only liked two Bob Marley songs.  Why shout at me like I have the ears of a Bat? You know what, I hear pretty well what’s going on here.

What? Is patience a little too much to ask? Where there is a will there is a way? Woman, I am not William and I’m not Superman. I am as human as they come. I miss appointments. I delay sometimes. I cannot be everywhere at the same time. But you don’t get that, do you?

You’re busy looking out for your own self. Twix, Poetry. Sossegi Things that make you feel good about yourself. I suppose I should feel good that for a moment there, you let me in on your good feelings. See how long that lasted.

Do you know what it means to love even? You give up when there’s a stutter in the record? I cannot believe this is what I signed up for.

Know what?  100 calls a day. 100 DMs. Whatsapp? That’s almost an electric bell. Yet I was not stressed out by that. I would take time to respond. But could we even have a chat without you bringing up some appointment I missed, some time I came late, why I didn’t get you those Legends Sausages?

Why is it all about you? Have you even thought to ask what I’m dealing with now? Do you even care?

I think I know the answer to that.

Goodbye Pearl. Oh yeah, it’s Diamonds are forever. Not Pearls. Pearls bring tears.

  1. I was there being serious until i came to "sossegi things.." then i burst out laughing. Hilarious.
    Well, that up there is a response not many men are man enough to gather. So i have a certain expectation for tomorrow, maybe i could be right!
