“I’d rather play video games.“
“I’d rather go out with friends.“
“I’d rather smoke some weed.“
“I’d rather take a nap.“
I’d say when I was with her.
She’d smile and nod.
I chose not to see the sadness in her eyes.
After a while,
The sadness was replaced by nothingness.
But I wasn’t looking,
So, I did not see.
“I’d rather hold her tight.“
“I’d rather talk with her.“
“I’d rather laugh with her.“
“I’d rather be there for her…”
I say when I’m alone.
But she’s moved on
And I’m stuck in a box
Six feet under.
“In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story using the phrase, ‘I’d rather be…'”
