No Good

Recommended Posts

"But why?"

"Because I can't make you happy."

Because I don't care enough to try.

"You already have."

"It wouldn't last."

You're not happy, you're infatuated.

"Have you found someone else? Is that it?"

"No, there's no one else."

But I'm looking.

"Can we still be friends?"

"You're just saying that because you hope we'll get back together, and that would be a bad idea."

We were never friends. I never liked you - I just fancied you.

"But why? Why would it be a bad idea?"

"I'm no good for you."

I'm no good.

I'd have to disagree also. Like Baby Bear said, for me it's just right. We're left with no doubt of the quality of the relationship and the personalities of the pair. The last line is perfect for the buildup, and too much more would belabor it.

Beyond flash -- its telegraphic.

It's kind of ironic, at this moment I'm listening to AD's first podcast, and the song is playing, Son of a Preacher man, and then I read this brilliant, sad flash and I couldn't help but draw parallels.

One hasn't realized it's beyond over while the other is trying to hide his unavailable emotions. How often I've been in this situation, trying to let the other person down gently, lying to make it more human, while all the time just wanting to say the truth and end it like pulling off a band aid.

I likes this muchly
