To Close For Comfort

When They Press All Your Buttons

Here it is not by choice but by circumstances beyond my control

You are with someone you can not stand

They make your hairs on your head play dead

Because you know if you can make a clean get away

You certainly will

Now is the time to silently get your butt out of here

Then in the same breath you realize you are trapped

Like a mouse on a glue trap

You can squeak and squeak but it doesn't change a thing

Now lets see if we can make the best of an aweful situation

We don't know unless we try

O.k. we have tried it didn't work you go your way I go my way

Then we call it a day

Why are you stil here ?

Can't you see I have done everything to leave you and have not succeeded yet

Don't you feel the tension I could cut it with knife

I am all jittery and now I can only imagine what words are going to come out of your mouth

Here it comes it didn't take long

Hi how are you ?

Are you kidding me ?

You hate my guts and I pretty much feel the same way about you

It has been this way for years and why should it change now

So I stood there baffled

I'm sorry I didn't hear you ?

Can you say it again

Hi how are you

I think someone over endulged holiday spirits just a little too early this year

Or I need to get my hearing checked A.S.A.P.

I'm fine how are you ?

Right back at you

Now I am going to see your true colors come out

I am good and I am glad I ran into you today

I was thinking in the past we have not been the best of friends

Now with Christmas just one day away

What do you say we let bigones be bigones

This person holds out their hand

What is happening

Is the world coming to an end

This is where panic settles in

We have been arch enemies for years

Now is time to turn the other cheek

Turnover a new leaf

I think it will be a great idea

So we shake on it both at the same time

Then say have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Now that wasn't half bad and it felt sincere

So for all you enemies out there

If you do nothing else for Christmas

It is time you find an old past aquaintance who you never liked or someone who rubbed you the wrong way

The type of person that gives rash that you to scratch and yet you can't

One thing is for sure my old life has ended with the end of the world

Now my new life is better than ever because you are my new friend

Maybe in time you might just become my best friend

I believe in miracles

Today is a day of miracles

I got to be part of one and you got to see one right before your eyes

That's as good as it gets

Just in time for Christmas better yet

Gypsy Rose Lee Miracles happen every day.We just don't see them because we aren't looking in the right places because they pop up in the strangest ways.Thanx for reading and sharing another thought that keeps me up all night.Until I put it on paper then it's off to bed and back to dream land once again.Have a great morning and for me it's still good night.

Dim Flaxenwick Christmas is really about giving.If you can give more of yourself than before.It has to be a wonderful thing.Thanx for reading and laughing.When you tell me that I made you laugh once more. I couldn't be happier.This gives me a good reason to keep writing and writing.When we can find so many other things to do.We have to pick and choose which is good for us and what is not.I keep writing for the chance to make someones day just a little better and brighter.Have a great night.

DREAM ON..I say .yes you are correct..let by gones be by gones..but..I also feel sometimes, why leave myself open for other issues ? remember " got along without you before I met you, gonna get along without you now "..say hello and ask how are you..and move on..I felt as you once..got re-burned..but I try to tolerate all perspectives and rationalize..great write though..Best to you..night/morning...

Forgiveness is a stepping stone to an open-heart. You captured the concept wonderfully.

Jlava73 We can carry a grudge and spend our whole life disliking someone or we can try to change.Move on and let the burden and past go.What a waste of time and effort thinking about bad thoughts and feelings.So much nicer concentrating on better thoughts and new ideas.Thanx so much for reading.

This is a good object lesson on keeping an open mind. My wife says mine is like a steel trap--nothing gets in, nothing gets out. Those situations you describe are always touchy, and your way would be a great outcome.
