Went on a book adventure today. Didn’t want to leave, ever.

"But time… how time first grounds us and then confounds us. We thought we were being mature when we were only being safe. We imagined we were being responsible but we were only being cowardly. What we called realism turned out to be a way of avoiding things rather than facing them. Time… give us enough time and our best-supported decisions will seem wobbly, our certainties whimsical."

- Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

Out of Love

I fell out of love

The way I first fell in

It took a long time

And was more gradual than sudden

I fell in love with the idea of a man

And it took another life to delete it

I didn’t see you for two years

And that helped the most

Because I couldn’t let go

If I hadn’t realized you were lost

It was both a conscious decision and an unconscious process

To free myself of only my love

It had hurt too much

To love you when you never knew

So I did the only thing I could

And finally, truly, hopefully let you go
