In My Mind I am Killing You….


In my mind, I am killing you.
Outwardly, I smile
I nod
I say things with a bright and interested look.
Ridiculous things.
“Of course you still fit into those shorts.”
“Oh, yes please tell me how you make your meatloaf. Again.”
“No, I don’t mind watching the twins.”
“No, I don’t mind watching the twin ferrets.”

But in my mind,
You are slowly sinking in lava.
Your hair has just burst into flame
Or, if I’m not feeling particularly bloodthirsty….
Your hair has just turned green. And leafy.
In my mind….

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
