Unmoving


Propped against the rim of one of twin glass cups, it stood over a thin film of crusted toothpaste at its base. Unlike its neighbor, its flayed bristles dried out and started collecting dust a long time ago.

Inches away lay a blue plastic razor. Barely used, still as sharp as ever, but has grown to be quite the loner. Countless neighbors have come and gone, and it has found it pointless to get to know them better.

They have stayed in place where you left them.

Still waiting. Unmoving.

Pining.

Hoping.

Btw Sean, someone actually uploaded the whole show on youtube, all 2 hours and 10 minutes of it, bootleg of course. Try looking it up (since you said you wanted to see the show)- The Book of Mormon Musical- by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone.
Awesome

we should come up with ideas on what to do with things we no longer need but don't have the courage to throw them.

waiting is sweet especially if he's worthy :)

I feel the same way but maski na pessimistic ako, there's still a part of me that's hoping : )

You'll find him. I just know : )
