Exercise 160707

Would you dare

to care, dear,

if I left

you and ran

away? Would it

matter to you

there in your

comfy chair seated

and surrounded by

your accumulation – pets,

hobby, mail, games?

I might return

but would you

even notice my

departure was premature

and immature too?

Any other fool

can be tool

themselves away and

not look back.

After all, this

is 2017 and

everything is dispensable.

Maybe it’s harder

though to endure,

compromise and work

at this thing

called a relationship.

If doom be

the ultimate price,

at least let

it be a

high one, like

from long ago

when things were

made to last

longer than a

latte or croissant

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.

  1. I try not to tamper too much with pieces that receive enough likes, as in this final piece of the night.

    This is a personal rambling of a person with a personality trait problem. It’s internal dialogue: the character is trying to wade through some conflicting emotion and detours before returning to the same spot with some measure of resolution. Hopefully.
