  • The Telephone Call

    “Are you sober?”




    “I’m moderately functional.”




    “I’ll take that as a no.”




    “Take it however you want.”




    “Did you come home last night?”




    “No.”




    “Were you with her?”




    “Well you were unavailable.”




    “I was at home.”




    “I mean you’re emotionally unavailable.”




    “I don’t know what to say. When I’m around you I know I can get lost in you. Just stare in wonder. It scares the shit out of me.”




    “I like that.”




    “What?”




    “That you tell me the truth. Maybe you’re not ready for me.”




    “I didn’t know how to tell you. But I don’t want to lose you.”




    “You won’t lose me, but I’m still seeing other people until you get your shit together. You know how you used to tell me to grow the fuck up?”




    “Yeah.”




    “You need to grow up. And hurry up. I’m waiting for you.”




    “Ok. I love you.”




    “I love you too. Bye.”

        I would wait forever and ever (Taylor Swift). It will work out but when...

      I loved the raw brutally honesty here - if only we all had that kind of strength - I had this early on life and then later.

        Reportage.
        Your writing
        is never less
        than striking.
