That’s What She Almost Said …

This post originally appeared December 4, 2019 on Kuched.  Though it received many positive comments and views, I deleted it.  Thought it may have been a little Self Inflamed.  Ego Rendered.  Get Over Myselfish.  But, its Just Me … Talking.  I own these words.  Cryptic to Gospel.  Added a bunch more on the version below.  If you think I’m writing this Friction Fiction about you?  Nah.  It’s All About Me even when it isn’t …    

EITHER I’VE LOST MY ALLEGED MIND

Or, I Left It In The Collective Soul Of Every Woman I’ve Met …

Either Way, Keep It, Girls.  My Treat.

“I’ll Just Grow Another Heart While I’m At It.”

… I’m Good Like That.

 

YOU SHOULD KNOW

Permission Not Granted … To Draft My Unauthorized Biography With The Working Title:

“The Pretty Prick Deserves Another Smack.”

If You Didn’t Want To Get Kuched – Know Me In Real Terms – Don’t Come Around Here No More, Darling.

… Maybe You Just Should’ve Asked.  And, Let Me Answer.  Before The Castration Reveal Party.

 

GROUND RULES FOR THE AFTER PARTY

Had To Make A Few … 

If We’re Going To Get Along

For More Than A Moment

… Here We Go.

 

1)  MY HEART’S NOT FOR HIRE

Any Price …

“Keep Window Shopping.  Find Something You Like?  If You Need To Fill Your Coach With Clocks … Maybe, Buy A Bigger Purse, Because Mine Won’t Fit.”

Saints On The Right.  Douches on the Left.

… Yeah, I Walk The Line In The Middle, Don’t Mind If I Slip And Slide Little?

 

2)  IF I NEED A BREAK

Give Me One … An Hour … Day …

With Or Without Me, You’re Better Off Going Your Way.

I Don’t Live In My Phone Wait For A Call.  Hold It In.

And, If I’m Not Over There.  By Your Side.  It’s Just A Baby Breathe I Need Alone.

 

3) I’M NOT YOUR CHEW TOY

Screw Boy … 

Or, Boy Wonderful.  It’s Been Awhile Since I’ve Saved Anyone’s World.

Don’t Get Your Flirt On Me, If You Don’t Intend To Get On Me.

… Just Know, I’m Easy Bait With A Gentle Bite … If It’s Me You Gotta Have.

 

4) IF YOU’RE PART OF MY PAST

Stay Right There – Don’t Move – Wherever You Are …   

I’m Not Coming Back.  To You.  Any Of It.

There’s No Us.  In Me.  Kindly, Exit My Now, Now.

… Drop It Like I Did.  It’s Not Cold.  Just True.

 

5) FUTURE GIRL

If You Need To Know All About It …  

Ask Me.  Straight Up.  I Don’t Hide.

So, You Don’t Have To Creep.  Make Assumptions.  Let Others Decide.

… I’ve Bled Over Every Damn Dirty Page Breaking The Truth Out, If Your Care To Read And Not Just Like.

 

6) GET OVER YOURSELF

Before You Get On With Me … 

Pretty Girls?  Hot Things.  Yeah, Not So Rare, Honey.

All You Got?  Oh, It Ain’t Enough For A Sapiosexual Like Me.  I’ve Met A Few.

“… Fresh-Cut Barbie’s Coming Out-Of-Cardboard Boxes Every Minute Or Two.”

 

7) NOT YOUR NEXT ANYTHING

No Bridge … 

Safe Port In A Storm.  No Bounce Back, Dude.  Just A Friend Don’t Need Benefits.

In Between.  The Sheets.  Dusk To Dawn.

… Until Mr. He’s-The-Right-One-Just-Like-The-Last-Wrong-One-All-The-Same-One Comes Along.

 

8) CAN’T IT BE

Whatever It Is … 

Do We?  Must We?

“You Didn’t Bring Me Up, So You Ain’t Bringing Me Down.”

… Momma Bear Didn’t Even Go There.

 

9) NO BMS SUFFERING FOOL

Better Man Syndrome … Don’t Need The Help, But Thanks For Offering.

Hell, I’ve Arrived.  My Penance Is Done.  Paid Up.

Oh, This?

… Gravy On My Sundae.

 

10) EAT.  PRAY.  LOVE.

You Know … Been There On The Way Back Up …

The Kaboodle.  Oodles Of It.  Think I’ll Stay Awhile.

To Find Whatever It Is I’m Looking For.

… But, I Ain’t Looking.

 

11)  BETTER NOW

I’m Cool …

Said I Was Sorry.

Left It There.

… Are You?

 

12)  MAYBE I MISUNDERSTOOD MYSELF

So, I’ll Say It Again … 

“Don’t Read My Hurried Mind.”

Until I Kiss You

… For The First Time.

    MIchael, you did a great job on both posts – I love your “word-smithing” e.g “get over myselfish” and your use of hyphens to make an adjective out of anything you wish to string together to make your point, nicely😊 Have a great day. Peace and blessings.
