"A ship is safe in the harbour but, that's not what ships are built for."


“Hey.”

“Yeah?”

“I just thought of something.”

“What?”

“This might be a little silly and you might think I am a little crazy but, I'm going to say it anyway. I have just been thinking, what if I'm not real. I might not be real. Like, my whole life could just be in a movie or something, it could just be leading up to a single moment. All my past, loves, aspirations, and downfalls meaningless. And you know what is the saddest thing?”

“What?”

“I probably wouldn't even be the main character. I'm in the movie but I'm just an extra in the background drinking coffee or something.”

“You don't even like coffee.”

“I know.”


The author's comments:

I have decided to make a series of pieces surrounding two or three people, sometimes one, having a deep conversation. Really these are just bits of interesting dialogue I come up with late at night, early in the morning, or when I am actually dreaming. Some could be the basic plot line of my dream. This may not be as interesting as some of my other stuff but I thought that I may as well put these snippets of writing to some use.
