I talk to you everyday, and of course I became attached. But then I forgot, I’m not the only one you talk to everyday, I’m not the only one you tell things too, and frankly, I doubt you even have the need to talk to me on a daily basis as much as I need to talk to you.
— Holly Black
instead of only a “congratulations”,
can I have something more?
Maybe a hug and …
if only you had tried a little harder,
and walked the extra mile,
I would have done the rest.
Daphne Du Maurier, “The Lover”
I know it sounds absurd,
I know we’ve never spoke a word
and I know this must sound strange to you,
but I just can’t stop thinking of you.
