Silence.
Tense,
Brutal,
Quiet.
I’ve loaded the slingshot of my tongue and aimed an insult between
Your eyes,
Light brown and feral, just as capable as I am at bringing the other down with
Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can last
Forever.
That is how long we thought we would last but I guess,
Best friend is a synonym for
Substitute.
Replacement.
Temporary stint before both parties move on to a much better prize.
