Thanks. It felt great, I just wrote and wrote until it came out. I had to think about the ending a bit because version one pretty much ended when the phone rang and it came across as an after school special with the bad guy beaten by the power of friendship.

EoC, that was amazing.

It made me feel feels.

That was not true, but it was true.

That's what happens.

I am terrified of the Marrow Man.

Because he wants pieces.

But we never know which ones before it's too late.

Thank you. I'm glad I was able to write The Marrow Man again, even if it was for this purpose. I can't even remember the other thread his stuff is in so I wasn't sure how I described him before. I'm sticking with the bone teeth for future use. Not enamel or calcified layers, bone. Like what's left after you eat a good smoked rib.

Edit:  Found it.

It turns out I ended both of them almost the exact same way!

We need a Marrow Man short story collection in the future.

Love it.  Can hear David and Jeanie as they exit the park, walk past the Butcher shop and get an impromptu Marrowbone and Cleaver performance.  Bravo!

Prepare yourself for vented drivel. Murky inane self-absorbed garbage that I just need to let out:
I donít know how to act, even these some four months later. The initial flood of support washed nothing away and in its wake a rot slowly settles, thick ugly foundation stuff, choking mildews and malignant molds. Iím on a constant search for fresh water. I feel like a beggar.

A single winter isnít long enough to reconcile the life I thought I had ahead of me. There are too many individual things to sort out, too many parts malfunctioning in the engine. Thereís the rage in all its directions. Inward for letting so precious a thing slip away, for accepting defeat so quickly, for this great heaping horrible pride, pride of kings and gods and too much for me. Pride dangling a body from a marionetteís strings. Outward to the one I trusted more than any other person I ever dared. Outward to the other man.

I let go altogether. Iíve seen her twice since the breakup while she picked up things she left behind. We texted back and forth a little bit, talked on facebook. Nothing real. A year ago when her brotherís girlfriend of four years left him, she didnít agree with how the girl was keeping him so close; like itíd be easier for him if the break were clean. I know sheís doing the same with me. I havenít attempted contact because, hey, pick a reason:  I hope it will help to move on, I hope sheíll see my illusion of doing well and itíll hurt, I canít be some sad wretch clinging onto that great unreal ghost of two years.

Iíve been running and writing letters. Both help, to some degree. Iíve been writing to a pretty woman Iíve known for a while and things looked promising between us, like maybe a new beauty to nurture and a move forward. We met up a few times, even. I donít know if we both wanted something to be there, but there didnít seem to be. A great relationship, maybe, but not one of love.

Iím still in love with my ex. Thatís all there is. There hasnít been a day where I donít think of her. Lately I feel, absurdly, like I want her to know that. Thatís all. Just to know it, and nothing else. Whatís so unhealthy about some small knowledge?

Iím tired and tense. I can feel muscles tightened and coiled but I donít know how to let them go. My vacation to Colombia is coming in two weeks and I keep thinking how easy it would be to disappear in that country. My step mother has family that owns a cattle farm and Iíll just be vaquero Americano, yeah? Never learn Spanish, just never speak again, living on coffee and beans. I donít believe in fresh starts unburdened by the big messy piles we keep building. New beginnings are only made once in a lifetime. But I believe in new air and sweeping grandiose change, in stupid romantic false futures. I chased one for two years.

That's tough.  Especially without contact...Which seems like it would be easier, but it usually isn't.

I have found that for myself, the hardest thing about moving on is reconciling with the idea that the future I planned is not the future I'm going to have.
