A Baby step to make it an official fullstop.

i'll be the ghost you never had, a vague vision of a future lost. i guess what i mean is that you need to stop telling lies: to yourself, about yourself, to me. if you want me, want me. don't just want me when it's convenient for your so-called life..

Citibank Vs HSBC Vs Maybank.

One day, three bankers, a Citibanker, one from HSBC and another from Maybank, went for a walk. They were old buddies from school, and they were remembering the tough old days they went as students together.

For no apparent reason, they went into a zoo and passed an elephant.Being from the same field and the same school, there is little bit of peer competition going on, so when he saw this elephant, an idea clicked the Citibanker,he said to the others "Why don't we prove who is the best among us? Let's make a test." The others, of course, agreed.

Then the Citibank said "Whoever can make this elephant laugh, he works for the best Bank". They all agreed and started. Being a pure logical strategist, the Citibanker tried to make the elephant laugh by telling jokes. Of course it stayed still. As a more practical guy, the HSBC guy tried to make funny gestures...and the elephant still stood firm. Now, comes the Maybanker. Being the tomorrow-can-do-it guy, he whispered something to the elephant, and it laughed at him while pointing its trunk at him. The other two were astonished. How come this Maybanker beat them?

So the HSBC guy said "OK, let's make another test. Let's make this elephant cries !!". So there they went again. The Citibanker told sad stories, the HSBC guy made sad gestures, and they fail again. Then, the Maybanker whispered something again in the elephant's ear and it just cried, weeping and patting away.

This can't be, thought the other two. So the Citibanker said "OK, you've won twice. If you can win this test, we will bow to you. Let's make this elephant run". He went and barked to the elephant ordering it to run. Of course, it stayed still. The HSBC guy pushes the elephant and stabs it with stake to make it run, it stayed still. So...our Maybanker comes to it and whispers something again in its ear and the elephant ran and ran as fast as it could, as if it was scared to death.

The other two surrendered. "OK, you're the best, pal.You work for a very good Bank; not even our global bankers can beat you. Do tell us your secret". "Well" said the Maybanker "the first time I made it laugh, I said maybank is the best bank ". "When I made it cry, I told the elephant how much I get paid". "And when I made it run scared to death, I said to it, Why don't you join Maybank?

The sun rose like it does on any other day, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

I'd just made coffee and you'd come back from doing the groceries and I asked if you wanted some without turning my head to look at you, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

And I hit the floor so slowly and so hard and without any real warning, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

I knew we'd had our differences and our silences but I didn't expect it to end like this, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

I thought there'd be more time, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

If I was still alive at that point, I imagine I'd smell cordite and sulphur filling the room and hear the echoes bouncing off the walls, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

I imagine there was a look of surprise on my face, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

I wonder if you thought you were being merciful by waiting until I wasn't looking, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

I probably stared off at a distant point, while you gathered your things together and left, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

And I know that my body was there for a while and that the room was dark and that it was very quiet, because of what you'd done, on the day you shot me in the back of the head.

But what you might not know, is that I got up.

And washed my face.

And the sun rose again.

On the day after you shot me in the back of the head.

If you like a whole bunch of things and I like a whole bunch of things, maybe one of
the things that we both like, can be each other.

"But I just want to stop feeling."

"As far as I can tell, there's only one way to stop feeling and that's to die."

"That seems a bit drastic."

"It is drastic. Perhaps the most drastic thing there is. There are other ways to kill feelings, like drinking a lot or working hard, constantly, pushing those around you as far away as possible until there's no way for you to reach out to them but ultimately, the only way to completely stop feeling, forever, is to die."

"I'm not sure I'm ready for that."

"Good. You'll be a better person for it."

"What do you mean?"

"I mean that the most interesting, amazing people I've ever met, the ones who influenced and shaped the universe itself, are the ones that felt too much but lived through it."

"That sounds hard."

"It is. It involves living."
