  • Now that we are not talking to each other anymore I wish I didn't exist... no, that's not true. If I wished it that much there are so many ways to make it happen. There are people who choose this path but I am definitely not one of them. In fact what I really want is a world spinning the way I tell it to.
    It would then spin a little slower or faster so that we could get to know each other at a different time. I do not know when and where it should happen. Though I know it should not be now and here. I would also upend this world. Maybe then it would be acceptable for us to be together.
    But this world... it does not exist and the real World spins at a pace it chooses and according to rules it creates. I have to respect it and play the game. What hand do I have? Did I get the Old Maid card?
