The Last Nice Thing

The Last Nice Thing

 

If you don’t stay

I’ll –

kill myself.

overdose.

You’ll have pushed me

off the edge.

It’ll be your fault

if you don’t

stay.

 

So this will be

the last nice thing

I ever do for you.

 

“Hey… this is his –

now ex

I guess.

I’m not expecting anything

[since you’ll probably take his side]

but he did threaten,

to go off the deep end.”

 

“I’d hate to see him do that to himself”

“So don’t let him”

“Okay?”

“I’m going to drop an L bomb tonight”

“We’ve swapped nevers and always”

1/26/16

“would you rather me not talk” about her?

11/15/15

“Then I dropped the L bomb”

“She followed it up immediately with a return of the sentiment”

A cryptic message received.

“I don’t know what to make of” these

11/15/15

“I honestly want to be with her, and I want to be hers for all time”

1/28/16

“I hope you don’t mind me saying, but I find you to be incredibly beautiful” he said to her.

“It hasn’t stopped feeling like a dream” he said to me.

“You know I’ve never slept in the same bed as anyone I’ve ever been with”

“I can’t help but see myself as such a fool”

2/22/16

“The official statement is: this sort of sucks”

Yet there was hardly any fuss.

3/7/16

“She wasn’t happy with me anymore”

“Pushed me away”

1/21/16

“I’ll never see her again”

“Feeling real expendable right about now”

2/22/16

“I hope you’re around”

“Secondly, I’m also single now”
