Wasting Time

in the end,
both only wished
to be done
with the

free of each
other, guilt
and mock

proving again,

low expectations
are easily

Stood still, walk away.

  1. Love the write

  2. This is way tight! Great write, Mark!

  3. “proving again, low expectations are easily met” … Nice.

  4. “Wasting Time” totally matches my view of “low expectations” but both seem as empty as a flat tire. This is a lovely capture of that mutual experience as back to back they leave.

    Thank you for visiting my site and leaving a comment!

  5. Nice. Short and acrid. Perfect. But I messed up reading it too soon. I haven’t done 3WW yet.

  6. so glad they knew when it was time to split…..great last line!

    Hit me like a grater! Beautiful wording.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
