As I clutched the phone, my legs turned to jelly.
My (ex) girlfriend had been rushed to the nearby ER — after slitting her wrist.
Giddy with hormones, my pubescent self had messed up.
Zero dates. Only booty calls. On and off as I pleased. Lame excuses to break up. Bald-faced lies to get her back.

Mopping the sweat with my sleeve, I pleaded and entreated.
I swore I’d get back with her and treat her right.
Bloody lies again.
