Long Before Now

"Did you miss me?"
"No..."

"You didn't miss me?"
"No."

"Didn't you feel an emptiness when I left?"
"Of course I did. But it was welcome. It was just what I needed. The cramped remnants of my life before you rushed in with relief to take your place."

"...are you saying I was an obstacle?"
"More like a damn dam, rather."

"You ingrate! I loved you!"
"Yeah, I placed you on a pedestal. I'm sure that was real pleasant for you."

"You didn't love me?"
"I did. More than I should. More than you deserved."

"So I guess that's it. We're over now?"
"No, we were over long before now."

I should've said that.

Listen man, at least someone is not writing this ABOUT you. You get hurt you move on, but when she has a nasty character, she's the one really miserable.

The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It's full of charts and facts and figures and instructions for dancing
But I
I love it when you read to me
And you
You can read me anything
The book of love has music in it
In fact that's where music comes from
Some of it is just transcendental
Some of it is just really dumb
But I
I love it when you sing to me
And you
You can sing me anything
The book of love is long and boring
And written very long ago
It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes
And things we're all too young to know
Peter Gabriel

aaah the beautiful crazy fantasy that is the "I should have said..." Powerful moments. One day I'm gonna be quick enough and brave enough to say one, as perfectly timed and as perfectly composed as I imagine....

Spicy emotional drama is unfolding.

I knew not this drama, that is both spicy and emotional! But let me tell u sumthing that was a tought very ouch ouch lesson to learn...

The absolute best thing to say to people whose emotional I.Q is represented with the visual of hoofs and a pitchfork: nothing. nothing. nothing. not a damn freaggin thing.

Bow out gracefully, let them dance alone till they see its no fun. If they prefer the dance masterbation routine - so be it. Its weird my ex called me drunk last nite discussing how he wants to spread his emotions (technical term...sperm) around, but he loves me. He said it. Good for him. I didnt say shit. Then he proceeded to fall asleep while i was talking about sumthing ELSE.

Diversion tactic.

Its your jockstrap.

I'm remorseful, not hurt. Did I give that impression?

Delirious

Pretty words...

You think? I doubt it. There'll always be something better you can think up.
