Go to Hell she told me, but the war of words continued.

The Sooky Girl’s Last Four Ugly Messages to Me

“Go to Hell!” she texted me, which I found amusing,

But the war of words had gone on too long;

She began the offensive with a vicious text:

“She must be a good fuck. I hope she was worth it.”

I had no idea what she meant. It was presumably rhetorical.

Alright, the Mad Woman did visit me one night,

But we are consenting adults and what we do,

Or in my case, don’t do, in the privacy of my abode

Is none of anybody’s business.

It’s none of the Sooky Girl’s concern

Who drops over out of the blue.

It would be funnier if she stopped sending me death threats

But what does one do? Keep calm.

There’s another text to delete

And I just want to get some sleep.

What does she want?

She will never win a war of words against me!

Alright, I admit I am cruel and petulant,

But that isn’t a capital offense as far as I know.

I’m not scared of Hell. I’m already living it.

Two more messages to delete. What does she want?

I’m not scared of Hell!

I’m already living it.

Sure sounds like a case of cyber-stalking to me!

Bring back the postal service, I say. People had to think before they communicated and they had to buy stamps. We were better off without the internet.

I'm over it now. She was a bitch and only wants men who can supply her with drugs. I met someone from my past who tracked me down on Booksie, but she is in lockdown in Melbourne. Oh well, when it blows over (let's hope) she is going to come and see me. We talk for hours on the phone. She cheers me up. I'm a lucky man.

I like how you wrote this. It's very conversational and yet takes place in the thoughts of the writer. This is an interchange that could happen anywhere to anyone.
