relationships are like chewing gum.
you get scared you’ll swallow it.
you love the first few fresh bites of it.
after a long while, the sweetness is gone.
you just chew cos’ of habit.
you’re afraid of spitting it out cos’ your mouth will feel empty and you teeth will need to bite.
but everything else in your life still remains the same.
even worse, you smoke or eat when you’ve got that chewing gum with you. cos’ the chewing gum is there and you are lazy to spit it out, eat and get a new gum. so you keep it there while doing everything else.
