Tantalizing Tuesday Tease: My way


It's tease time again and sometimes you just don't need 200 words.

Once you have read what I have to say if you click on the image above you will be taken to a magical portal, where all my amazing friends are waiting for you with teases of their own.

Thank you.

My Way

Regrets I've had a few.
Fuck Frank that's one hell of an understatement, I've had a lot more than a few
Taking another mouthful of the burning liquid from the bottle I shivered, as it set fire to my throat on the way down.
Sitting there with the only friend I had in the world, a bottle of Jack Daniels, I wondered why the fuck I was still here. Then realized it was probably because if I tried to end it I'd fuck that up just like I'd fucked up everything else I'd ever tried.
Another mouthful and the haunting words of Frank Sinatra filled my mind again.
Too few to mention.
Yeah right Frank I'd had that fucking many I had lost fucking count. The self-harming, the failed marriages, in fact my failure at fucking everything and anything. Still none of it mattered any more, not now, now I could, and would, do anything I wanted.
The trouble was though all I wanted to do was empty this bottle and then start another, if I was still awake.

There are times when I was right there just like that. This brought back a lot of emotions for me, yet despite where he is, for some reason I still feel there's hope. Good work, Julez and it also taps into what I love and hate that song.

I've been there Julez; ten to fifteen years ago. I know the pain, know the pain. I was a widower in 2000. Very painful memories.

Oh wow, that's one heck of a powerful flash. Well done, Julez!
