To participate in Stream of Consciousness Saturday and learn the rules, click here.

There are days when I fall in love with you and days when I fall out of love with you, sometimes within minutes of each other, the same emotion, differently held. I think about you when you’re not here, worry when you should have called and haven’t. Then you’ll say something oblivious and I wonder what it is I’ve done. Years one can never retrieve. Anger in my lungs, heart, ears, but not in words, mostly. Sometimes those are as cutting as a very sharp knife always too late to grab them back. But life’s like that, I suppose. It’s not an all love all the time radio station. It’s all stupid emotions all the time. The good thing is that mostly we laugh and it’s the laughter that carries us through our days.


(Might have to give this one another try on another day.)
