Every event in life has a ripple effect
If it’s an unfortunate event, it takes
Time to get over it
If we ever do
Have taken enough
Of my time, my tears, my heart
I gave it without thinking
Or listening to
My own instincts
Screaming for me to stop myself
But to you
I gave too much
I won’t waste anymore tears on you
With that pain came a lesson
That I’d never have learned without you
I don’t need you
I need love
You never had that to give
Last week I deleted your face
From anywhere my eyes could land
Won’t be long before
I don’t remember you at all
I am determined
To erase you out of my brain
I’ll keep the lesson
Purge the garbage.
through textured glass I saw destruction
bleary and unsettling
still; I opened the door
tripped the bomb
teeming with rancor
for a moment there was bliss
just an instant like a summer kiss; where
lazy warm rain drizzled on my face
peek a boo sunshine shone
warm in that place
but with these eyes came second sight
you were pain incarnate
sudden, strong and mean
left me tied to a heartache
then galloped off into the sunset
I wish I was a cowboy
I went to the TMobile store to handle some business today on my lunch break. I walked in and within three steps I was face to face with a girl named “In Training” who is, like the majority of people, taller than me. I was a little put off by it, because it seemed like I’d been bumrushed, but I am a little more paranoid/standoffish than a lot of people. Then her trainer comes around and they’re asking when I’m in there to do, and the trainer asks me what kind of phone I have, I’m still pimping my 2 year old Galaxy S4, I don’t have a desire to constantly upgrade.
She made a face like she was eating bad cheese. My immediate thought is, “Ya’ll sold me this shit, what the fuck is that face for?” I did say the latter part, sans the swear. She (not even kidding) said, “Girl, let us upgrade ya”. Look, I know it’s their job to sell, but to act like a product YOUR COMPANY sold me is suddenly inferior enough to warrant bad cheese face is, in my opinion, bad form.
I can’t even think of a good analogy for this mess and I’m good with those y’all. I think people get so caught up trying to sell crap to you that they forget common sense. I didn’t upgrade my phone, won’t upgrade my phone. Especially not on a damn whim – I have WAY too much stuff on that thing to give it up like that. But why fix what isn’t broken? I can’t be bothered to give a fuck about the Jones’. Not to mention every time a phone puts out a new model, it’s bigger than the prior. My palms are 4″ x 4″ and with my fingers extended tip to wrist, my hands are each 7″. My S4 is PLENTY big for my hands.
I’m pretty happy with this phone, and I own it. I feel good about this and I’m keeping it. When did these tiny computers become so disposable?
I work in a law office, and we see people all the time, as a thirty something single female, occasionally we’ll have clients that are easy on the eyes (and I’ll have a crush that I’d never act on), occasionally a client flirts..and I, being as clueless as I tend to be – will most often miss these cues.
Today however I’m pretty sure I read those cues right and I’m going to see this person pop up when I’m on my own time….
