Shallow Dance

When you're done looking around the website, please visit my Patreon page to learn how you can lend a little support to my work. It's easy and it's inexpensive. In fact, you can help keep the motor running for no more than a few measly bucks--kinda like buying me a drink at the bar. Which, by the way, is my favorite way of saying thanks.

But if you never seem to catch me at the bar, you can do this instead.

Check it out.

In the meantime, enjoy yourself. And drop me a line when you get a chance.

I'm sorry I lied to you.

I'm sorry I lied to you.

You asked me if I cared and I told you I did. I'm sorry.

The truth is, I don't give a shit.

I laughed at your joke, even though it was stupid and mean. I'm sorry.

I'm sorry I pretended to like you. The truth is I think you're an asshole.

I'm sorry I said yes. I meant to say no.

I'm sorry I said no. I meant to say yes.

I told you I wasn't angry, but I am. I'm sorry I lied to you.

I'm sorry I said, "It's not you, it's me."

It was you.

I'm sorry I said I couldn't help you. I could have helped you, and it would have been easy. I'm sorry.

You asked me if I cared and I told you I didn't.

I'm sorry. I do care, but I'm afraid.

I told you I was doing fine, but I'm not.

The truth is I'm lonely. I'm sorry I lied to you.

I'm sorry I pretended to dislike you. The truth is I think you're pretty cool.
