"I've told myself so many times before

But this time I think I mean it for sure,

We have reached a full stop,

Nothing's going to save us from the big drop."

Depeche Mode, "Leave In Silence"

We made our biggest m-i-s-t-a-k-e

Almost

thirty

years

ago

At first, things were good

(the honeymoon-mode always is)

But then the effect…

w.o.r.e o…f…f

It wasn't even the physical aspect of

a:g:i:n:g

It was our personalities

But you shouldn't have a blonde by your side

You're all

strawberry-kissed, & sky-blue eyes

&& I know you'll marry her for everything

(not just her brilliance)

Meanwhile, I'll be on the sidelines

fending off his "clever" wit & charms

Because I think I'd rather let you feel guilty

than let myself find

HAPPINESS

Anyone guess that the end had a hint of Lorcannah? :) *sigh* I do love Vicnev and a slightly spiteful Hannah… :3

Thanks for reading, and please review!

2017 note: As the yrs passed, I wrote Hannah less and less often as spiteful in her crumbling relationship with Neville. Ah, and it was a hint of Lorcannah inspired by "Wheels Turn 'Round & You're Ashamed."
