7:43 am ][ shattered guilt.

Follow on WordPress.com

Iam half asleep.  I was awakened not too long ago from the sound of porcelain crashing against my kitchen floor.  I have yet to find anything that causes my heart to race more than loud sounds in the midst of a deep sleep.  My eyelids hit the ceiling but my body remained motionless.  There was an intruder in my house, I was sure of it.  I was about to die.  This was it…karma…in the flesh.

As rationality started to set in, I realized that no one would ever break into this shitty apartment.  I left my sofa and walked into the kitchen to find Brooklynn, my cat hovering over a broken “Jessi” – the newest addition to my personal cheerleading squad of mugs.  My new, inspirational, comforting mug was done for.  At that moment, I realized two things:

-I’ve binged watched too much Criminal Minds this week.

– Jessi had been helping me cope with my guilt.

I started to cry (just a little – 4 tears max, don’t worry).  I couldn’t remember the last time I felt this conflicted.  To tell your heart that its wrong feels like the ultimate betrayal.  One thing is for certain…gorilla glue…today. I must resurrect Jessi… there’s no way I’m confronting my conscience without her.

  3. Somehow, some way, Brooklyn has to replace that mug. LOL. In the meantime, hope you had luck with the gorilla glue ’cause Jessi was priceless. So was this piece! P.S. I had to stop watching “Luther” because I couldn’t deal with little creepy night noises at twilight either.
