The Prodigal Returns

Cheque please.

Everything comes with a cost.
Sometimes it’s nothing much. The bill is paid willingly with a simple gesture or a pittance that exacts no great effort.
The best things… well those are the things that devour your world. The cost is onerous. It is excised by a paper thin knife honed to a brilliant edge laying open sinew and bone while the payment is lapped up in excruciating measures of blood, self and soul.
 
Yes I still want it. I’d like to charge it if you don’t mind. The percentage of interest is a delicious insult added to the injury and I’ll pay the bill in full, time after time.

  2. I have come back quite a few times to read and reread this…to try and figure out the exact meaning behind it. Somehow it is something that applies to me, as if I had written it, and in that I am trying to figure out how it applies to you.Plainly said, that is damn good writing if it makes me return again and again.Sher
