I am not like them. I am not fat. I am not ugly. I do not say ugly things. I always do the right thing. I always try. I try to take care of my responsibilities. My responsibilities are my family. My family is most important in my life. My life is full. Full of responsibilities. Full of work. Full of plans.
I plan to take care of bills. I plan to take care of debt. I plan to move. I plan.
They do things. They cheat on their spouses. They get pregnant. They abandon their children. They get drunk. They get stoned. They make mistakes. They get taken care of. They go to Las Vegas. They go to LA. They do. I plan.
They feel. They feel loved. They feel close. They feel forgiven. They feel right.
I am. I am alone. I am separated. I am judged. I am wrong.
I long. I long for closeness. I long to forget. Forget my plans, my duties. I long to do something once without consideration, without thought, on pure instinct; get drunk and give in to a stranger for a moment of pleasure, moment of closeness, moment of thoughtlessness.
The morning after I will wake up. I will wake up with myself. I will be judged. I will be separated. I will be wrong.
They do. I plan. They feel. I am. They get taken care of. I take care. They live. I long...
