Things you never got to say

This is harder for me than I would have thought. It seems like all of my friends doing this writing challenge have a lot to say for this prompt, but I’m drawing a bit of a blank. I think that’s because I tend to say exactly what I want to say, when I want to say it. Whether it is good or bad, I don’t tend to keep my mouth shut and/or bottle up my emotions. I have found (especially these past five years) that honesty is the best policy, and that getting it out into the world can set you free. I don’t like to be a prisoner to what ifs or regrets. It’s cheesy, but true: The truth really will set you free.

However, there is one person to whom I have something I would like to say, and I could still say it, as this person is alive and well. I even talk to this person occasionally…though always against my will.  And if it wouldn’t produce the world’s biggest shit storm, which would devastate someone that I love, I would say the following:

I know what you did to my brother, you disgusting piece of scum sucking trash, and I hope you die.  It should have been you instead.

But I can’t. So I won’t.
