Joke

You thought it was a joke. You thought we were just playing. You thought it was all pretending. An act. A show.

For a while I joined the game too.

What harm could a little bit of play do?

None of us thought of consequences. Funny. Who would think that far when emotions are a living, breathing, burning being?

We acted in haste. Gave it no thought. Thoughts… they only spoil the fun.

Oh, the fun we had.  We turned everything into a joke.

Then it turned on me. You turned your back.

After all, this was all only a joke.

I watched you watch me choke.
