Sometimes it hurts inside
but you’re my bad habit
like biting nails
or cracking knuckles
or not washing my feet after spending a day barefooted in the mud.
kissing your lips is as natural to me
as licking my own
so much so that I need to constantly apply lip balm
to prevent them from getting dry
but I haven’t found the equivalent preventative measure
in terms of you inevitably breaking my heart yet.
