Lousy

I called someone lousy today. But what I really wanted to say was

    “you’re a waste of God breath”

Go take a bubble bath with a jelly fish so that hardened heart can be sliced out of your chest and iced set in an orange and white cooler almost frozen until it’s time for a helicopter flight to later bind it with an expectant vessel a host that will better cherish and appreciate each life giving beat.

lousy - Lousy

I mean since that’s what you so callously did to me figuratively speaking at least.

I wait now hardened, frozen, hoping not to thaw before the time to fuse with another is prime. Wondering anxiously like Dorothy in the locked castle chamber fearfully watching the sands drop through the mystic hour glass regretting the disregard for home seeking adventure and finding imminent death.

So yeah, that’s all the stuff i was secretly thinking and didn’t say.

Lousy kinda sums it all up anyways.
