I Don’t Forgive and I Don’t Forget

I Don’t Forgive and I Don’t Forget

By Elizabeth Harper

First time
I give benefit of the doubt

Second time
If I like you
I talk to you about it

Third time
I get angry

Fourth time
I mentally rehearse death threats

Fifth time
Torture fantasies

Sixth time
I plot revenge

Seventh time
We’re no longer friends
