this is just a bruise, dont you understand? i drank too many diet cokes too quickly, i stood up when i should have been lying down, i stared at the sun for too long. i ran too long with my lungs begging to collapse, i fell down the stairs and swallowed my kidney. i just tripped. it was just a mistake. its not what you think it is.
and this, this is just heart burn, dont worry yourself over it. i swallowed too many peppers without a glass of milk to coat my throat, i let the knife slip when i was cutting up the apple. i bit my tongue when i was running to catch the bus, i stayed under the bathwater too long until i was blue-faced and gasping for air. i just got dizzy. its okay, i promise.
and this is just a sore throat. its not contagious, okay? i walked barefoot in the snow, i belly flopped into the pool. i didnt drink enough water in the summer. i walked into a glass door, i hit my elbow on the counter, i smacked my head when i was standing up. i just wasnt watching where i was going. i learned my lesson.
you know what? don't tell me im in love.
i promise, im not.
i couldnt be.
