This Is Rejection

She asked me what does rejection feel like.
I told it to her plain:
It’s when someone takes their foot and puts it on your chest, right over your heart, and presses down with all their strength and all their might and all their weight; and then proceeds to tell you:
“Breathe.”

About Quinn

In it but not of it. A reformed player, now watcher. Speaker of raw truths.

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
