Befriending Ophelia

by Bradd Howard

I too have been driven crazy by a man.
so let me meet you by the lakeshore before
you jump in.
We'll have girl talk,
do facials.
form a bond of sisterhood.
We can talk about the many and myriad ways we've
been fucked over by men.
Don't do it Ophelia babe.
That Hamlet may have been a stud,
but he's nothing to go crazy over,
believe me I've been driven crazy by the worst.
... oh and Ophelia some words of advice...
When a man looks you in the eyes and tells you he loves you,
question his motives before jumping in.
okay?

Bradd, this title pulled me into your words and I feel the pain and emotion written between the lines. I often identified with Ophelia, too, but the true tragedy is that these guys don't know what they're missing when they lie to people like us.
