Like worms at an apple’s core.
Continuous track ‘til 3AM.
Victory is bitter.
Sheds new light-
Tearful apology offered.
Guilt happens to be one of my demons, however, it is often more insidious than this. In an argument, I’ll generally clam up and not say anything at all…because I know if I say anything in anger, it will destroy. No, guilt sneaks up on me hours after a conversation, sometimes waking me in the middle of the night, making we worry that something I said came out wrong and I hurt the person’s feelings. Guilt pulls on me until I call the person to apologize or explain. Most of the time, I’m met with confused acceptance because they weren’t bothered at all.
I know for a fact this affliction is hereditary because I’ve taken such calls from my mom.
This was written in response to Trifecta’s weekend writing prompt, which they asked for for 33 of our own words that exorcise a demon. One of your own, or one from your imagination. Let it bleed on the page.
I’ve bled, you’ve read 🙂 This is a community voted challenge, so if you like what I’ve written, voting opens on Sunday at 7PM Eastern time on Trifecta’s site. If you have time, check out the other entries (or write one of your own). The tricycle picture will take you to Trifecta’s site. As always, I appreciate your visit!
