You and I

Indifferent comment.

Angry rebuttal.

Disbelieving remark.

Smartassed statement.

Indifferent whine.

Yell of defeat.

Tears. Alone.



"The idea’s stupid." you say, looking me directly in the eyes. "Why would you do something like that?"

I look to the floor and shuffle my feet. I hadn’t expected this from you. Of all people - you! I don’t know what to say as my heart rams against my chest. I hadn’t expected this.

"We could do this for fun, you know, just us!"

"We’re already us." Your icy glare stares me in the face. Your eyes dead like a shark’s, your fingers clenching and unclenching as you decide what to do with me and my ideas. "Isn’t that enough?"

You walk away and a quiet sob escapes from me. I close my eyes and decide that I’m going to go through with it. 

Even if you don’t want me to.
