Afternoon Ire {Studio30Plus/Velvet Verbosity}

I am angry, shaking, rallying against every impulse to call you out,

expose you,

shove your hypocrisy into the light.

I could you know.

Blood pulsing at the side of my head; a frightening thump, thump that, if this were a movie, would predicate an aneurysm.

Sure, it’s a hackneyed plot twist but one we’re all comfortable believing now.

The world would never have to know I died here, under the kiss of the sun, daydreaming of being wrapped in your arms.

Maybe I wasn’t your problem to solve, but I was your heart to break.

Sure as hell, you did.
