Brinkmanship is the practice of trying to achieve an advantageous outcome by pushing dangerous events to the brink of active conflict.
A car, a face, trust, a heart, a wall, a child, a door, a life. That some of those things are even listed is enough to question ... Everything.
Today I learned that you are being held accountable on an event that now carries the possibility of a multi-year jail sentence.
I do not know you. Maybe I never really did. Maybe the charge doesn't fit the crime. And maybe you are finally being held accountable for your actions, regardless of all the other incidents that have gone unreported due to blackmail or threats.
Maybe I just don't give a fuck.
And maybe I do.
Maybe I have to.
But maybe I ain't used to maybes, smashing in a cold room. Cutting my hands up every time I touch you.
Maybe it's time to wave goodbye now.
