california c&w boys

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.
Looking back, I can’t remember the truth. I blew everything out of proportion so I could feel the hurt and betrayal and write about it in vivid detail. It was my own method of torture. My own undoing; and I enjoyed every second of it.

Can anyone of my musically inclined friends ID this photo? No info on web origin (I do not own the original.) No luck with google reverse image look-up. Caption reads “California Country & Western Boys, Earl Bert (or Bart) Lee”

I’m thinking 30’s ~ early 40’s, although footwear appears older? Could be late 1920’s…

03/05/2013: Some friends have suggested HAROLD LLOYD is in the middle? Maybe the reason why his right hand is half concealed in his pocket (was missing two fingers since 1919) He didn’t play the banjo but this might be on the set of one of his many movies?
