My abusive ex is hovering around the edges of my life, keeps tabs on me, talks shit to old mutual friends about my marriage. Hadn't heard about or thought of them for months until friends chewed me out for 'stalking' them. Got a spell to get peace?
*hackles go up…WAY up*
If by “peace” you mean “rest in peace.” At the very least, you’ll want to do something about that slander they’ve been spreading around and sever those ties for good. So here’s what you want to do:
Get yourself some whole cloves, some thistle leaves, a small lime, a good-sized strawberry, vinegar, a pin, and a jar.
Slice the strawberry lengthwise so that you get a flat, triangular piece. Looks a bit like a tongue, doesn’t it? That’s the idea. Fold it in half and stick it through with the pin. Recite:
I bind your mouth, I bind your voice Because you made the foolish choice To insult, slander, and seek to maim, But now it is YOU who will be shamed.
Toss the pinned slice into the jar with a few whole cloves and those prickly thistle leaves. Slice the lime and squeeze the juice into the jar as well. (You can substitute bottled lime juice if you have it on hand.) Fill with vinegar.
(If you happen to have any mullein leaf or lobelia flowers within reach, throw those in for an extra punch.)
Seal the jar up good and tight. You may wish to reinforce the lid with duct tape to prevent leaks. You can bury the jar if you wish, or simply discard it with your trash.
FUCK YOU if you think there’s anything wrong with romantic relationships involving people who are not (or even close to) the same age. You’re no better than people who are against interracial relationships or gay relationships if you think like that. Love between two consensual adults can never be wrong. So fuck you. The only thing that’s disgusting is your ignorance.
