There is a bottle
that sits in my shower. It's been there for months now, partially hidden behind the strawberry scented Suave
. Nobody uses it and probably never will, but it sits there untouched, in the corner
When I was 13 I was introduced to the world of the Internet
- I'm 21 now. I met a guy on a MUD
then who I thought of as my best friend
until about a year ago. Because that's when we met in RL
. The bottle of shampoo in the shower was left by him when he came to visit
. He left it on accident, I guess.
Everytime I take a shower I am reminded
of him. Of the strangeness of having his words match up with his face, his expressions, his voice
. I'm reminded of when he consumed every part of my mind. I'm reminded that we no longer speak to each other
But that bottle of shampoo stays in place
. I think to take it out and throw it away now and then, but I never do.
