Drabble #6: No need to explain–

It’s simple really. If you don’t like it, get rid of it. It it makes you unhappy, let it go – it might as well be this physically real white-hot piece of metal you’re holding on to. No need to explain. You won’t owe anyone a single apology. The universe will work against you no matter what you do anyway, so might as well assert yourself where you can.

Thing is, it all just evens out in the end.

I deleted it from my phone, only to realize that I’d memorized it right down to the very last digit, to the smallest nuance in the way it was spoken out loud.

Drabble #1 (of undefined): Oh, the things I’d do.

If someday, you find yourself plagued with second thoughts and miscalculations; if you suddenly feel that, somewhere along the way, you lost yourself to everything else and you’re worried you’ve become the person you don’t want to be; if you feel like celebrating, but there’s no one around who could empathize; if you simply feel a little too lonely for your own good –

– call me, and i’ll try my best to find the words (and a pack of chocolate chip cookies large enough) for the¬†occasion. You can count on that.
