I hardly noticed you were gone

We’ve all, at one time or another, felt the razor sharp cutting words a friend or an intimate partner can inflict without warning, and, most of the time, without good reason, but only because they can, because they, as most of us do, enjoy bringing indescribable psychic pain to others, destroying us from within by twisting and shredding our very souls until we can not even scream, but instead fall limp, and near lifeless upon the cold floor whimpering for hours unheard by everyone too busy chasing their unreachable dreams of power and glory to even spare the briefest of moments thinking of us.

doesnt it

No one made mention of your return that I can remember

though now that I think about it

there was a look on their faces I couldn’t quite figure

like fear maybe,

but not the kind of fear one would have

if cornered by a Bengal Tiger,

no,

it was the kind of fear you might have after eating most of a salad

only to find a band-aid at the bottom of it

and, I have to say

you didn’t make it any better

when you asked

if the sun still rose in the east
