Blessed

”We’ve been together for so long. My parents found out about only a few years before they died. It was tough for them, but they liked her, they could see she was making me happy…. I miss them too. We don’t have any kids. We don’t like other people so much. We only have each other and that’s okay. But we are beginning to feel it. We aren’t young anymore. We aren’t as beautiful anymore. We are beginning to worry about each other. We are starting to get nervous when one of us feels a little ill. We know that if one goes, the other one will fall apart…. But I guess that’s true love and we should feel blessed for getting this far…”

No Other Way


”’He was supposed to meet us here…. We were supposed to come together… Maybe something happened. We’ve come this far. He has to come. He promised us a long time ago. He said he’d never leave us…. Where are we supposed to go now? He was supposed to give us all the answers. We live our lives by his words. I don’t know where to look for him now. I don’t know where to look for the answers. I’ve heard your suggestions, but they scare me. I don’t want to believe any of them. We were supposed to know the truth. We were supposed to know where we were going…. I can’t have it any other way…”

The Greater Good

”You don’t understand! People are counting on me! I can’t just quit what I’m doing, I can’t just start over. I have to finish what I’ve started. I love these people. But I’m aware of the risks, I know who they are. I know how it goes. I understand that maybe that maybe they don’t love me as much as I love them. They will say they do but I know better. They might never even show me the appreciation I deserve… I’m okay with this. I’ve accepted this a long time ago. Behind my back, they talk about me. They talk about how weak I am. I become an imagined villain of their hopes and dreams. The person that fucked them up. This isn’t about me. This is about the greater good. And the greater good is all about putting yourself aside. It’s about destroying the self and letting the world around you bloom. That’s what I believe in…
But I like to think that one day, even after I’m long gone, they might see me for who I really am, what’s in my heart. They will learn to love me yet…”
