Oral Health
fishykarma

Its not that I don't care
 1
      about your oral health
 2
 
 
                   Or
 3
 
 
      That I don't want You
 4
 
 
  To have minty fresh breath
 5
      and a glittering smile
 6
 
 
    I know it sounds stupid,
 7
      You were inside me
 8
          for fucks sake
 9
 
 
          But it was too
 10
 
 
              Intimate
 11
 
 
   To have your toothbrush
 12
             Dangling
 13
         Alongside mine
 14
    For some undetermined
 15
        amount of time
 16
          Till next time?
 17
 
 
            Intimate
 18
               and
 19
        presumptuous
 20
 
 
   So what I'm trying to say
 21
             Is that
 22
   I threw your toothbrush
 23
              away
 24
 
 
                And
 25
 
 
  I'm afraid of commitment.

I think everyone can relate to this at some point haha.
I’d omit the last two lines, throwing the toothbrush away significant.
