what do they say about altruism?
what is it that is making me chuck all my self-preservation insticts aside and charge head-first toward an oncoming train.
why am i choosing to stay for you.
choosing - because i know that i am not being compelled to stay for any other reason other than free will and free will alone
so i am choosing to stay because, just because, i think you might need me.
it doesn't matter that in a few months or if i'm lucky, a couple of years, i will be nothing but a stale memory in a box of old jokes and faded cards.
because you just might need me, now.
