When I'm having one of those days, I sometimes wonder if I am not shiny anymore. I'm not new any longer, haven't been for a very long time. I know I'm loved, but I'll never be new to him again.
I ask myself "Can I still be shiny without being new?"
But then I feel him behind me in the bathroom, looking at me in the mirror as he tears my clothes off. He has a hunger in his eyes, and as he presses against me, pulling my head up when I try to lower it, forcing me to look... I see the look in his eyes and I know I am still shiny to him.
