Game of Thrones meme: Eight friendships and/or otps [3/8]
↳ Catelyn and Brienne
"Friendzoned again!" I shout, pumping my fist in the air. I made a new friend today. Today is a good day.
the glass jar is cold and clear under my tingling fingers,
i appreciate it, clean and empty, for a moment
before grabbing my spoon and filling it,
watching splashes paint the inside walls and smiling at how
the whole thing is.
i indulge a moment, let myself lick the spoon as i secure the lid of the jar.
my smile tastes like cold bright afternoons and adrenaline nausea.
in the past i would have tried to devour it all at once,
let it rot and stink up the kitchen,
or thrown it all away without a thought.
or any combination of the three.
now i place it carefully on the shelf above my head,
where it will sit and keep and stay behind glass walls
where i can ignore it, give it the occasional glance
until the day it ends up in my stomach or someone else’s hands or the trash bin.
i acknowledge the possibility (ever so slight)
that it could hurtle to the ground one day
covering me, the floors, the walls, the windows,
getting glass shards everywhere.
we all must acknowledge and accept some risks, i tell myself,
or we’d never get anywhere.
a sunray strides through the windowpane,
hits the glass and paints the room with coloured light.
my smile tastes like warm winds and a satisfied housecat.
i like the word partners because no one can tell if you’re dating or if you’re in a buddy cop movie
