Daily Prompt: Argument

via Daily Prompt: Argument

It was the same argument over and over in her head. Don’t text him, don’t text him, don’t text him. She wanted to win this argument she really did, but her heart would not let her. Just text him, maybe he’ll respond this time. Just text him, he’ll see how much you miss him. Just text him, he’ll understand. But he didn’t.

The argument played on for days, weeks. Don’t do it, stop texting him. Again the heart compelled her to do what her brain was trying to tell her stop doing. Maybe now he’ll understand that all I want to do is see him. Maybe now he’ll agree that this is no way to end a relationship. Maybe now he’ll talk to me, understand what I am going through. But he didn’t.

And the argument played on in her head until the very end. She texted him, again, apologizing for texting him too much in the past. He responded, the door opened a little. She kicked through it and texted more. She was relentless, her heart was winning the argument, but in reality, she was actually losing the argument.

He finally responded. They had their conversation. The texting has stopped and so has their relationship. Ultimately, there was no winner in this argument, her head and her heart both lost.

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. Navigating the dating waters in my forties isn't easy but hey what in life is? My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

  1. This is so relatable to some of my friend’s own experiences. It is so tough not to talk things out in person as you can often not know what a person is thinking or how they feel, if their words are meant. Life has to go on still, though…
