"Call when and if you want."
And you laugh. And ask why I think you wouldn't want.
It's because I would never put it past you. The existence of the possibility that one day you will wake up and just not want me anymore, is as much of a truth as the existence of the universe itself. Because people change and they move on. They grow up, grow out.
You are human. Just as human as the rest of us. Just as human as me.
So I never forget the possibility that you will one day, just not want me.
The possibility that I will fade like a forgotten memory.
Become a number discarded.
A string of symbols on an old phone bill.
A picture deleted to free space on a phone.
A sensation from a distant past.
Just another dust particle in a shaft of light, one among many.
So no, I do not make the mistake of assuming, for that will only cause pain in the end.
And you shouldn't either.
