Happy 30th Anniversary, Final Fantasy

I may or may not have a little piece to post sometime today. I’m working on it now. If I don’t finish it today, I’ll put it up sometime this coming week. 

Here’s to the game that started it all, without which none of us, whatever our favorite title, would be here celebrating. If Final Fantasy, in any of its many forms, has changed or otherwise affected your life for the better, take a moment to remember the original, even if you’ve never played it. 

Open call: what has Final Fantasy meant to you, and which ones affected you the most?

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.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
