I’m going to go back to college to study engineering.
I’m going to study medicine and find out
how those little pads they put on sick people work.
I’m going to stay up all night studying
until I know absolutely everything there is to know
about bodies and wires
and then I’m going to build a machine that lets me take someone else’s pain
and I will take everything you’re feeling
away from you
I will take
every piece of broken glass in your heart
and put it into mine
because you have become a bigger part of me
than I am to myself
because being able to take your pain for you
is the only thing that’ll make me feel better.
So I’m going back to college.
