  • It is a most sorry recipe to have two people quite whole apart but never quite whole together suffering that they cannot have each other in bits and cannot have each other at all.

  • But it is the smallest things you miss when you lose someone. Like the last kiss you shared and the last time you looked into their eyes. Those are the things that kill you. Those are the things you take with you as time goes by.

They will tell you that every thing passes, my baby girl. They’ll tell you that everything passes, but they won’t tell you where. It will pass through your veins, through your bones, through the corners of your eyes, through every muscle, through every drop of blood, through your smiles, through your tears, to that hollow that opens a void in your stomach. And it will pass without mercy, without asking for permission. And it will pass, and it will change you. And you will resist, and it will pass. You will have a new beginning, another life, another love. But there will be days, in a moment of crisis, in a moment of weakness.. well, only on thing will wander in your mind. A print in your heart, a scar recalibrated but never healed. The biggest wish, a falling star, the cents thrown in the fountain, the white stripes on the sky. A name and a pair of eyes. Because, my baby girl, some things do end. But other things, they simply … end, less.
