Every time we’re near enough to touch
my body forgets the regrets
in my mind & in my liver.
Do you remember when
we listened to that cover song
below a muted sun
as we waited
for a plane to take us away?
Just you & me
I can’t remember a more beautiful
I can’t listen to that song
but I will always adore you
just as we sang to each other
in that final summer
of our happiness.

I’ve never been in love with anyone. Ever.
Love is an elevated form of self-harm. Nothing lasts…
As Camus said: “Believe me there is no such thing as great suffering, great regret, great memory….everything is forgotten, even a great love. That’s what’s sad about life, and also what’s wonderful about it. There is only a way of looking at things, a way that comes to you every once in a while…”

I’m sorry if this was a shocking response, C. I didn’t mean that I hate. I am full of love. It’s just… and “underneath” layer.
There was no shock baby, and I didn’t sense any hate either. No need to worry
Thank you so much. I was so worried you were angry at me for some reason. =D
Of course not, I was just happy to be able to use a Camus quote haha
