I understand how scissors can beat paper, and I get how rock can beat scissors, but there’s no fucking way paper can beat rock. Is paper supposed to magically wrap around rock and leave it immobile? Why the hell can’t paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors, why can’t paper do this with people? Why aren’t sheets of college ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they take notes in class? I’ll tell you why, because paper can’t beat anybody. When I play rock paper scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, oh shit, I’m sorry, I thought paper would protect you, you asshole! - Anonymous.

A Lack of Colour

She has the sparkle in her eyes and a smile on her lips. Being with her makes you feel relieved of the curses of life. Her presence alone makes you forget the everyday qualms. Never have you seen her cry. Never have you seen her weep. Always a smile; always a laugh; never even a sigh.

You tell her you want her, she says no. You hold her hand, she pulls it away. You wonder what her problem is. You envy that smile. You feel she is just not that into you. You feel someone like her deserves a different destiny. You stay annoyed. You throw things in the room. You forget. You move on.


The crowd has gone. She is alone. Not lonely. Maybe only alone. She removes the mask of pretense. Slips into her jammies, plays some music, puts the lights off and lays down. She thinks about you. She remembers how you make her laugh. She replays the moment when you had held her hand. Her eyes sparkle at the constant thoughts of you. She smiles. She tosses around, stares at the phone, writes a long text and then deletes it. A tear rolls down. She had pulled her hand away.

Because in her world... it is not meant to happen.

  1. She's quite the complex girl, the kind you can miss, yet are drawn to.

    Aaand, I love the song from which the post title has been inspired.
