The Belligerent Stranger
I’ve seen you around lately, but I can’t remember your name.
You do look familiar, but then again, I can’t place you. Have we met before?
What do you want?
Me? What do you mean?
Are you a friend or foe? Because I don’t need more of either.
Where do I begin. So many things have happened in my life lately, I really don’t need another distraction. I’ve got my hands full as it is. A distraction would … you know, distract me.
Oh, you think that’s exactly what I need? Why would you say that?
Forgotten who I am? No I haven’t.
Don’t know what I want? That’s not true either. I know exactly what I want, I just can’t have it.
No, it’s not in my power.
Yes, I put my heart on the line, and it got rejected.
You don’t know what you’re talking about. You don’t even know me.
How can you know me better than I know myself? You’re being obtuse.
I’m in denial? I’m dying? Who do you think I am?
No, I will not admit I feel that way. I’m not playing with fire. I’m not trying to sabotage anything.
For a stranger, you sure are a know-it-all. I don’t like your words or your attitude.
Change? Me …change? I don’t need to change. I like who I am.
I don’t care if they like me or not. They’ll eventually leave me. They always do.
Spiral of what?
I don’t think I like you very much.
What do you mean you don’t like who I am?
You know what, I’m done with this conversation. Piss off.
**Walks away from the mirror.**
Till next time,
~The Belligerent Stranger
