Ghosting

Standard

Haunt your home like a spectre. Do not speak or acknowledge your lover when spoken to. Spend entire days standing in the corner. In time, she may come to believe that you died and she simply forgot. When finally you do pack up and leave, your lover will be grateful.

  1. Dude, those last two lines are so deeply sad! There’s this wonderful play of words happening throughout this piece, taking the widely socially-understood term of “ghosting” and equating it to death and leaving and being forgotten. This is powerful writing!

    I like the slight horror vibe this has, with standing immobile in the corner and essentially haunting your own house. It put an extra level of creepy over his actions.
