thanx for reminding me the pain will let up. so far it only does in small incriments. last night i came across the last gift she gave me. i threw it in the dumpster. weeks ago i had disposed of all her cards. my mind still suddenly displays vignettes of when she loved me. i suppose those memories will grow more and more obsolete with time. how sad. what's evem more sad is how obsolete they are already to my ex. i know eventually i will fall back into that all too familiar, lonely, stressless, solitary mode. relationships are few and far between with me so i know my memories of her will be mythic. how are you doing, taken?
