you're not the same little kid
who believed in hate at first sight
and who thought life had just begun (and ended)
you're b(i)(e)tter now, you're a grown up
so fucking act like one!
oh, you're scared. that's okay, have some (balls!) sex
see, now you're allowed to do it, doesn't it make it easier?

“That’s a revelation.”
“No. Seriously. I have issues.”
“All right. I’ll bite. What’s going on?”
