Just a Thought






Just a Thought



Do you think when you
ignore me
that I cease to exist?

The joke’s on you.
Someday I will.

And you
will still be
wasting all that time

ignoring nothing.

  1. Amen, sista. I love this. I read it, like, nine times.

    I am a great believer in now you see it now you don't. That's why I never ignore people I care for, and why I nauseatingly insist on telling them I love them every ding dong day. And never let the sun set on an argument. Life is too short and uncertain.

  2. I love it too, it made me smile. Whoever is ignoring you should stop it. Immediately. You are WAY too talented and interesting to be ignored:)

  3. It's funny...but so many people believe that the other person does cease to exist when they try to forget them (because really what is ignoring but a poor attempt at mental oblivion?). It must be a shock to them to realize that they not only continue to exist, but they continue to prosper.

  5. Beautiful and wise, filled with a certain feminine anger towards stupid boys and their thoughts of knowing us when they actually don't.
