a cat in the hat

Happy Birthday Kat and Peter!! Your comment about you and Peter occasionally going by Thing 1 and Thing 2 made me laugh so hard. You see my best friends of over a decade are identical female twins who frequently go Thing 1 and Thing 2 since their mother adores Dr. Seuss. And the faces they pull about it are this cross between fond, exasperated, and embarrassed. It never fails to make laugh and that's where my mind went immediately.

xD My older brother Axel practically raised us, and according to him we were obsessed with The Cat in the Hat when we were little, so the names stuck. We’ve never minded overmuch, I’ll admit. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
