Final act - In This moment

I’m not sure if anyone will find this. Even if they do I’m not sure they will be able to read my scrawl. I’m not sure why I’m writing this, I guess I feel obliged. Perhaps the one thing I can think straight about. It’s late enough that the days have ticked over but not so late you could call it early. As I sketch these words, the bitter winter air is setting my lungs on fire and my hand is tingling and sore.
My story is your story, except that for me, this is the end. And if I can I’ll paint myself into as many clichés as possible, just to help make you understand. Just so somehow, you can have the vaguest of ideas as to how it feels to be me.
In this moment, my cliché tears are rolling down my cliché panic-stricken face, I’m shaking my cliché shake and feeling my cliché pain. I am –as cliché would have it – nothing special. Nothing interesting, except for perhaps the blood on my shirt.
I know I shouldn’t of done it –how many times has that been said before- but you know what? I’m glad. I’m glad I did, you and he deserved it. You deserved your own set of cliché tears and pain and blood. I hope they don’t find him in time and I sincerely hope they don’t find what I took in time. I’ve certainly given it a good hiding spot.
All is fair in love and war, so the cliché believers will tell you. Well, right now, I don’t know which this is, but either way – I feel justified. My love has become my war. I will not fight for you, but I will fight you. I hope tonight I’ve proved that. I hope that tonight I have changed your life forever and ruined his.
It’s childish and bitter I know, but I don’t care. It’s amazing what whiskey can do for your confidence. It surprised me what it can do for aggression.
And so to my final act, childish and bitter to the last. I’ve even left a little room for my love of clichés, but darling, it’s true. I can’t go on like this, I can’t. too much has happened. In this moment, I am destroyed. Maybe man can teach himself to fly, or perhaps, just perhaps, you will read of me tomorrow.
