Changing the Subject
By Erin Griffin


I don't know why I kissed her. I guess because I wanted to. No other reason or rhyme for it. I saw her sad eyes, wondering why the world treated her like shit after she tried so hard to be a good girl and do her homework and get good grades and accepted into a nice college... Her trying to ask me what I knew about the shooting in her subtle, very nice girl ways. I wanted to take away the wounded puppy dog look she had. I didn't want to tell her what happened. She would have hated me for it, and I wouldn't see her again. I guess it wierded me out that I WANTED to see her again. Forever, I knew wasn't very long, and tomorrow wasn't guarenteed, but if today was good- and it's good when she's around somehow- then I can say take me Satan, for I know where I am going. I felt I had to change the subject, so I killed two birds with one stone. I wanted to change the subject on the shooting, and I wanted to know if there was a special reason why she always wanted to see me. Why she felt I could help her and nobody else. I just wanted to kiss her damn it. But she didn't kiss me back. Now I feel like the kicked puppy.
