Him: So – y’think you’re back on your feet finally?
Me: (thinking) Yeah. I do.
Him: Good. (raises a weapon) Let’s go.
Me: (laughing and raising my sword) En garde.
Been spending my days with my nose to the grind and working like mad. Spending nights with my favourite person.
An old friend of mine crossed my mind today. We had some good times but he ended up being a different person; I’m sure he thinks the same of me. But in the end – like so many others – that relationship wasn’t worth the time and effort.
They say never burn any bridges, but I say sometimes you gotta burn all them bridges down, to the ground, cause you won’t be coming this way again.
And the bridges and people I got left earned their spot in my life as I hope I’ve in theirs.
Got my pad, my people, my poison, and my person. I’m sickeningly content.
And boy, have I got stories to tell you. I’ll tell you one
Me: I’m good at convincing people to do things they wouldn’t want to do normally.
Her: Well, you convinced me to marry you.
