I AM VERY SORRY TO INFORM YOU

A story about being denied from your dreams

"I am very sorry to inform you that it is not possible to offer you admission to the Class of 2016."

Four…

Four in a…

Four in a row.

I do not cry.

I cannot speak.

All I can do is curl up

Into a ball,

On my side,

And mindlessly stare at the TV screen

For not one…

Not two…

But three hours.

The channel never changes.

The program never changes.

I don't change for

I am frozen.

All the options I foresaw have been eliminated.

And so all that is left is my despair and the flashing electrons illuminating the room.
