You know when you fall out with someone? Say you kind of knew one another years a ago and then met up again and had to meet up again. We made that happen- well I did- one night. I wanted to drink. I wanted to get pissed, soak up as much nostalgia as I could.
Cocktails in a pub, turned to vodka, sambuca, dagga and my extensive benzo cocktail medication at his house. I got ridiculous. Something happened. An argument? We fooled around. I’m going to say common sense and a conscious stopped anything too serious to occur. I admit that may just be the glossed over version.
I didn’t have a knife in my hand. I was in the bathroom not in the shower. No blood but looking for my mobile phone. Stumbling about in a nebulous haze.
‘1984’ the book that first drew your eyes to that word ‘ nebulous’ . The person to make me look up its meaning . If I could sum up that whole might in one word -NEBULOUS would be it.
An argument. I took offence to the the word ‘psycho. I’m too sensitive for my own good. You were going to call the police.
WHAT WARRANTED THAT? I walked home. Again I was told I am mad because I wouldn’t get a taxi. I was drunk, fucked up -confused, sad- offended- my pride……
Indeed my pride is why I sent you that email – everything thing I knew about you I used against you. You retaliated. I cried. But what did I expect after calling you what I did. I deleted the messages and blocked you. I forgot and then I remembered. We had fallen out before.
Lately I have been wondering if you meant what you said. I’m glad I deleted the message because I can’t go back and read what you thought of me. I want to reach out but pride won’t let me. I’m sorry! I know we were both fucked up and you were just a bit of a dick and I was reckless- a bitch? A psycho ? but I know that is not the true you and I know who I am and what kind of person I am.
This is the best way of getting YOU out of my system. What I really wanted was your friendship but I guess impulses got in the way.
Do I feel better?
I will. I mean,
I’m only human.
I mean I am human.
Being human doesn’t come with a Genie with the voice and comic timing of Robin Williams…
It does come with a daughter and my husband to be, a wedding,a trip to Orlando and a career. I’m not Daisy circa 2009 or even Daisy circa last night. I do however have too much heart and not enough sleeves to show it.
Only silver linings….. and a heart free of anger and one filled with ‘I wish you well and have to let you go’ Your happiness precedes my Ego,my pride and my curiosity..
