skate cartoons

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

Ted the Animator: “Something seems… vaguely wrong with Shaggy’s skates. I can’t quite place what.”

Carl the Animator: “Huh? They’re just regular rollerskates, what’s there to be wrong?”

Ted the Animator: “…wait… hold up, his feet are just floating over the wheels! Nothing’s attached to anything!”

Carl the Animator: “…are you telling me rollerskates don’t give you the power of levitation?”

Ted the Animator: “…”

Carl the Animator: “My childhood was a lie.”
