I wanted to share a short story that I wrote in 2011. I thought it would be a good idea to show this side of myself. You see I love to write poems, short stories, etc. It help me relax as well as let my imagination run wild. This will be the 1st time that I will be sharing my stories to the public. So please share your thought and opinion about it. Here we go please enjoy!
I feel that I have been running for a minute now. Minute turn into hours, hours turn into days, and days turn into month. I didn’t know what to nor I didn’t mean to do I what I did. Everything happens so fast. It feels like it was yesterday, but wait it was yesterday. As I’m running through the woods. I'm covered in mud, my clothes had hole in it, and massive bloodstain all over my body, face, and hands. But what’s worst about this most of all is I just so happen to be running in new shoes that I just brought last week Ugh! My body can no longer go on, I need a break from all this running. So I stop by a lake to wash my face. As I began to see my face in the reflection in the water I start to rethink what happened. I felt tears rushing down my face because of the fighting, walking in on my lover (Mitch) cheating on me, and the doctor telling that I am now HIV positive.
it all started yesterday at the Doctor office. I came in for a routine check-up. Unfortunately it was a good one, my doctor came into the room with this serious look on his face. I could tell that something was wrong like my blood pressure was too high or that I should lay off the sweet. As he pulled his next to me and grab my hands. He began to say the following “Jake your blood test came back positive for HIV I’m so sorry”. He starts to talk about the next step, but I spaced out in disbelief on how this was possible. Me and Mitch have been together for 5yrs now. When we 1st met each other we were both HIV Neg and got tested together before having unprotected sex. I suggestive that we should get on Prep but said that we wouldn’t need it since we’ll be faithful to each other. so I trusted his words.
As I finally make it home I notice that there’s a car way in the driveway beside his own. The car look so familiar but I was so consumed by rage that I didn’t give no fuck to take a second look. I park my car on the grass and walk into the house. As I walk in I notice there’re clothes on the floor leading up the stairs, the sound of sex noise so passionately loud. I went back to my car to get my baseball bat out of the trunk., proceed to walk back into the house. I went into the kitchen to grab a Knife just in case something pop off. As I begin to walk up the stairs the sex noise started to become louder and clearer.
As I walk to the bedroom door I peak into the room only to have mouth drop. I couldn’t believe my eyes, I was in a state of fucking shock to find my best friend (Leo) and Mitch having sex. The thought of betrayal, lied, and played for a fool feeling started to make me angry that it was the last thing I could remember. I black out all I know is that I all I could hear was “Stop Please Stop!” But I didn’t care all I could hear that voice slowly becoming quiet and the feeling of something wet all over my hands and face, my clothes covered in red, and two naked bodies laying on the bed. When I realize what I have done, all that I could think was “run Jake run’ and that’s exactly what I did run.
Now do you understand why I am running? Not because of what I did, but simply for the fact that I’m ashamed of what happened to me. I refuse to let people know about the truth that I’m now HIV positive. I threw the murder weapon into the lake and continue running. So I will keep running till I can no longer run anymore or if this virus takes my life 1st……
