The Ongoing Struggle

February 27, 2011

It starts today.
My new life.
Today is the day I start living
the life I've wanted
dreamed about.

The person I've fantasized awaits me.
It will be a long road
but the beginning is clear.
I am ready
I am strong.

I walk downstairs,
I see the cake you left,
chocolate- specially for me.
Because it's my favorite
and you know I'll eat too much
and make you look better.

F*** you, i think.
I cut into it
and sigh.
I put the knife down,
my fingers breaking it apart
without mercy.

It starts tomorrow.
My new life starts tomorrow.
I finish the cake and cry.
