The past is a lesson; never forget the wisdom it brought you. It’s fuel to moving forward.
It’s almost 2014 and there’s room for nothing but better things to come. No sulking, no regrets, no missing. 2014 is for growth, for wonder, for surprises, for achieving bigger things.
With the ending of 2013 I’m leaving what’s been dragging me down, letting go of relationships that are more trouble than it’s worth, putting down extra baggage that no longer benefits me. Will not be looking back but at the same time not forgetting.
This year has taught me so much about acceptance — accepting that all things are impermanent. Even the ones that used to be dearest to you are not meant to stay forever. The world is a big one; there’s so much more to explore, things to experience, people to meet, emotions to feel.
Bring it on, world, because I’m no longer weak. I’m no longer afraid. I’m no longer running.
I’m ready for all of it.
Missing you this much should be illegal.
They say that people think about themselves 90% of the time, which justifies not giving a shit about what other people think because chances are they’re not thinking about you at all.
Well aren’t you one lucky motherfucker, being on my mind all the time. You’re all I ever think about. It kills me but you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Maybe I’m falling without realizing it. And I’m not even gonna resist it. Not this time.
I miss you. Or as the French say, tu me manques — you are missing from me.
Just be here already. Please?
Let the ache fade away
With the falling of the sands,
Of the drops of water,
Of the heaven’s stars
Did I hold you too tight? Did I not let enough light in?
We used to get closer than this. Is it something you miss?
From Coexist (2011)
I cry for a love that’s dead.
I cry for a love that I’ve tried for a long time to hold on to, the love that kept me captive.
The only logical thing right now to do is to forget.
When I told you I want you, I chose to spare you the pressure of having to react at all. Then, I’ve decided to let you go. Because if you wanted me back, you’d have said something.
