"I am a creature of grief and dust and bitter longings. There is an empty place within me where my heart was once."
"Did you ever know, dear, how much you took away with you when you left? You have stripped me even of my past, even of the things we never shared."
"Of course, you never really forget anyone, but you certainly release them. You stop allowing their history to have any meaning for you today. You let them change their haircut, let them move, let them fall in love again. And when you see this person you have let go, you realize that there is no reason to be sad. The person you knew exists somewhere, but you are separated by too much time to reach them again."
I have been treating you
like the bandage
when you might actually
be the wound.
