Brushing Teeth and Burning Matches

While violently brushing my teeth, I looked in the mirror. For a moment, my reflection wore nothing but your boxers. Once upon a time, I said that you brush your teeth like my dad. “Like how? Violently?” you garbled through a foamy grin. I looked back in the mirror, and you were gone.

I remembered that loving you again, is like setting fire to book of matches. At first it would be brilliant, explosive and a lot fun. But at the end of the day, it’s just a cheap thrill from which I might get seriously burned.

  1. You should be more careful when brushing your gums or you’ll get receeding gumlines. Try using soft bristles. Root exposure while getting your teeth cleaned at the dentist is worst than natural childbirth. Trust me on this, I know.
