Day 25: Think of any word. Search it on google images. Write something inspired by the 11th image.

I couldn’t find a source for this image, as it’s been used in several places around the net uncredited in the nature of Meme Culture. If you know the source, please let me know in the comments!

My friend asks me
“What do you want”
and I stare at him
because
the answer has never
mattered
before.

Impatient,
he asks me
again and again and again
but all I can think about
are french fries and ice cream
and all the things I don’t want.

So I say the fourth thing I think of:
I say “I want you to stop asking me that question.”
which is not only not the answer he wants
but it isn’t even the truth.

He asks again,
and a shiver runs down my spine,
even as a rage I don’t understand
climbs up my throat,
using my esophagus like a ladder.
Because I said to stop,
but like all the other times I said stop,
it doesn’t seem to matter.

He says I have a bad habit
of letting boys kiss me
and I guess he isn’t wrong.
I’m still wondering what’s happening
as my back is pushed against the wall
and my lips are pushed apart.
I’m not paying attention
to the foreign intrusion in my mouth
feeling around my teeth.

I know this isn’t what I want,
but I don’t know
the alternative.
