I played along

felt something sharp rise up within me

I always feel like a freak because I’m never able to move on like this, you know? People just have an affair or even entire relationships — they break up and they forget. They move on like they would have changed brands of cereal. I feel I was never able to forget anyone I’ve been with because each person had their own specific qualities. You can never replace anyone; what is lost is lost. Each relationship, when it ends, really damages me; I never fully recover. That’s why I’m very careful with getting involved, because it hurts too much.

The airy sky has taken its place leaning against the wall.
It is like a prayer to what is empty
And what is empty turns its face to us
and whispers:
‘I am not empty, I am open.’

— Tomas Tranströmer, from “Vermeer,” in The Winged Energy of Desire (2004) trans. by Robert Bly (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)
