vintage bunnies

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.

If you have some April Fool prank you want to play on Easter better do it tomorrow for it’s a long wait until the next time the two days fall together, 62 years to be exact.

Although Easter has fallen on April 1 several times in recent years it will not be until the year 2018 that it will do so again.

So if you have plans for a soap filled Easter egg better get busy.
