“We were victims of unsynchronized passion. Those times when I was out of love, the Kraut was deep in some romantic tribulation, and on those occasions when Dietrich was on the surface and swimming about with those marvelously seeking eyes, I was submerged.” –Ernest Hemingway

  1. “One time I had a wonderful plan and resolve to only love one person. This plan was known as the Seven Year Monogamy Plan. It went to hell too.
    So now I have no plan.”

      But this is all my doing, so I pay the penance. An old, tired dance. I am haunted by the ghosts of what was, what could have been, and what can’t be. So, it’s crowded here but equally directionless. I have taken an approach of excessive activity; once someone told me that it distracts the mind and fills the empty. …I must need more activity still.

      • “They say time will
        Make all this go away
        But it’s time that has taken my tomorrows
        And turned them into yesterdays”
         -Ben Harper
        Knowing it can’t be provides surprisingly little closure and even less direction. Feverishly refurbishing every inch of a home keeps my hands busy but fails to consume my mind.  I won’t make a habit of revisiting this but sometimes it helps to be reminded the whole thing wasn’t just a dream. I know this too shall pass, but I thought the passing would have started by now.
