Hey . . . I was doing just fine before I met you.
Legitimately fine. Heck, I even had plans for the new year. But along you came to ruin everything. My perfectly dusted shelves weren't in need of filling. My white walls looked fine without your paint.
I didn't ask for this.
You've overstayed your welcome. Once the clock strikes 12 everything's supposed to return back to normal. Feelings are supposed to fade. Glass slippers are supposed to disappear. Yet, here you are - a pungent aroma too hard to mask. No perfume could do the trick this time. It was unavoidable. Unexplainable. It was hard. Though miles away from shore, this ship continues to sail. With or without the current this ship will plow forwards.
See more in my blog.
