when i step alone
into my shower,
it's you.

it's you when
i hear the folsom prison blues
and when i drink bitter coffee-

it isn't you
when i sleep in white sheets
and patterned pillows,
a hand in mine
and soft cyrillic letters
to wake me.

it's you in my closet
hidden somewhere in the depths,
it's you in my short hair,
it's you in the photos of ireland
taken by my friends-

but it's not you
when these lips grace my ears
with words softer than you
ever knew,
when these lips grace my face
in softer ways than you
ever knew,
when these lips grace my heart
in softer ways than you
had hardened it.

i am trying to be
a better person
and he is helping me
get there.

love how the one assholish comment on this is from a suspended account? also: people like to pretend they know who you really are on the internet.

all aside, lovely, just like you.

better person? how amusing. I promised you would never hurt anyone like me. "he" will immediately know who and what you are. Lets see how softly he whispers then. When he finds out he is with a liar, whore, criminal, monster. Look forward to meeting him

you can defame me any way you want, but at least do it truthfully. i pride myself on honesty and the most illegal thing i've done is download music. at one point i might've believed you calling me a whore, but then how have i been seeing only one guy for five months? good luck meeting him when you don't even know me; good luck having anyone even mildly significant stay in your life when you work so hard to destroy someone you don't know- i can only imagine the ammunition you'd have on someone you do know.
