i've been listening to this song again this morning
(when i wallow...i REALLY wallow)
it's pretty perfectly describing my sentiments
i had a friendship that ended a few months ago.
there wasn't a big, thunderclap of an event that brought about its demise
it just sort of ceased to be
and it was such a close, intimate friendship
that i feel its absence every day
this is how breakups are.
whether we are losing lovers, or losing friends.
try as i might to get over it
our ever-increasingly connected world is making it impossible.
every time i open my computer
(okay, let's be honest. every time i open FACEBOOK. which is daily. multiple times.)
i get a reminder of how i'm not part of that person's life anymore
and it all just makes me wish that i wasn't such an elephant
incapable of forgetting
and moving on
shouldn't people just cease to be when we fall out of relationship with them?
wouldn't that make it so much easier to continue living?
without them there, as constant reminders of how good things used to be?
(i'm not wishing death upon anyone. just to clarify.)
to top it all off,
here's a totally unrelated image
sorry i'm such a downer today.
surely i'm not the only one that's gone through this...
