In What Universe

A thoughtscreaming monkey:

In what universe is it normal to have to warn your so-called Best Beloved not to take a verbal dig at you in front of the people you’re about to have lunch with?

…and yet, this is my reality.



“The thing you are most afraid to write Write that.” ― Nayyirah Waheed

Have you ever been afraid to write something because the writing makes it real?

I have.

I’m afraid to write that I think my marriage is dying.  The relationship that I cherished, nurtured, and dreamed of, is withering on the vine.

I am letting it.

Where before there would have been a begging, demanding, crying plea for unity or co-operation, there is now silence.

The song lyrics, ‘Say something, I’m giving up on you,’ are reverberating in my brain.

If he notices the withering, he hasn’t commented.
