Quarantine Fever

Post by mrsmica » Tue Sep 14, 2010 1:37 am

The quarantine means that I’m stuck with you.

Remember how I held your hand when we heard the news? I had spent all that week packing and working out how to tell you that I don’t love you any more, but then I chickened out.

At first it was your pig-squeal laugh. How I hated your laugh and the way you pick your toes and how you roll your eyes at me and so many other petty things.

Now it’s your cough. The stuffy nose. The puffy eyes.

There are sleeping pills in the medicine cabinet and I’m still packed.

It's usually best to tell someone straight out... my god, now they'll grow mad!
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

>:D thanks, guys!

Well, if you're stuck living with them for the next few months, maybe you shouldn't break their heart...right? I mean, they'll be impossible to live with after that!
