Exercise 090801

When she said no way

did you growl at her

accusing her of selling out?

Yet despite all your badgering

she still left leaving you

stumped as to why she’d

throw it all away. But

much later, murmurings were heard

and her name was bandied

around as if mud. Did

you join in; after all,

she had left you, you, the

best thing in her life! As

if given a life line

you seized it with full

gusto and joined in the

allegations. And for what? For

revenge? To feel better about

yourself over her sudden departure?

Or did you just say

to heck with it, much

too much going on right

now to worry over something

like this. I bet you

took this path, bet money

on it. And still no

reply to say why, even

after all these years. At

least you got the car.

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.
