THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 116

Defeatist Attitudes

Then he said,
“Defeatist attitudes
never won battles.”
I wondered if he made that quote up himself.
A faint smile flickered over his face,
and he got up,
and he left me,
and loneliness washed over me
until all expression departed from my face.
I scanned my mind for a happy image,
but all I could find were mental pictures
of my crush.
He’s reading a book,
he’s laughing,
he’s with Lindsey…

defeatist attitudes
never won battles.
I repeated that to myself,
turning each word over.
I considered writing it
on my hand.
