"Well, I met an old man
Dying on a train.
No more destination,
No more pain.
Well, he said
"One thing before I graduate
Never let your fear decide your fate." -AWOLNATION, "Kill Your Heroes"

so here's the thing,
someday, somewhere
a man will fall in love with me
in ways you never could
i don't give a damn that it wasn't you.
or you, you, you, you, or you.
any and all of the love ghosts
that come in the night with our memories.
my hands are washed and sanitized
and sparkly clean
the soap bubbles popped and ligaments
dried courtesy of double-ply;
you are no longer oil on my skin,
and your indifference is not my problem.
