A Moment's Nostalgia

It’s been 8 months.

When I find myself leaning over the sink
my face heaving with tears for absolutely
no reason,
I wonder what causes pain
and why we are so addicted to it.

Often I ask myself when someone leaves
if my biggest regret is that I never said
"I love you" enough, 
or
the fact that I ever said it at all.

Often I think to myself of that
one night stand
or those intoxicated filled kisses
in attempt to make me feel something
I won’t remember in the morning.

Incapable of proper dates
or honest affection.
It’s just a game, like it was for you
and I have practiced enough
to become the champion.

"People say bullshit clichés like ‘time heals all wounds’ to comfort themselves. But anyone who’s experienced real grief knows that it never goes away – you just get better at lying to yourself, at covering up the signs, at faking normal."

"The way he said her name made my heart cramp. In all my years of word collecting, I’ve learned this to be a tried and true fact: I can very often tell how much a person loves another person by the way they say their name. I think that’s one of the best feelings in the world, when you know your name is safe in another person’s mouth. When you know they’ll never shout it out like a cuss word, but say it or whisper it like a once-upon-a-time."

"I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love."
