this is not a post about another good song

though streets of philadelphia is definitely an example of one

this post is about more words
and here they are

*****************

and this is a sort of revenge
i know it is
and the need for it
more than it itself
makes me angry
but there is nothing else
to take its place
despite its leaving me
more empty
than empty

Revenge
when you've truly hit bottom
Revenge tells you to dig deeper

Revenge is better than powerless.

Revenge...is a dish best eaten cold, I read somewhere.

Put it in the fridge, my friend.

diane - it does.

mr miller - yes. thats why it's in the fridge. so that at least i can convince myself i might come back to it later. and hope that i find i dont need to when i do.

As the Boomtown Rats sang, "Revenge is sweet but it's sugar-free".

I prefer internet shopping to revenge. Although, I guess spending a bunch of money when the hubs has to foot the bill IS sorta revenge, no?

Marla said...

I disagree, dear friend. There is so much more to take it's place. I promise, there is.

justsomethoughts... said...

jo jo - it is. and it is.

existential one - it is and it is. but i dont have a husband to foot the bill :)

marla - easier said than done. one's work, the other's just gut. not nec good, but easier.
