Letter to a young(er) romantic...

Dear Boy,

You will always think and hope and pray that she will come back.
But she never will.
It is as true now, as it was then.
In the past I'd hear Christians say that God doesn't break his own rules of physics,
miracles are merely a bending of God's rules.
If she comes back, it's like that - a bending of the rules.
She will never really return.
It was as true then, as it is now.

Sleep well,
Manboy (for we're still learning)

Aw, darling. Pele. I feel your pain. Though if she came back I would recommend that you push her out and sweep the floor after her :)

Life: a series of possible impossibles and impossible possibles.

Practise non-attachment, the hardest thing to practise.

"He who binds to himself a joy,
Does the winged life destroy.

But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise"

Truly heart wrenching and realistic picture of torturous love!

I think Jeremy's comment sums it up aptly!

And in particular, there's so much wisdom in the words "Practice non-attachment..." Something I often struggle with too.

Stay strong.

I really do feel your pain. You put it more eloquently than I did though, the most I could muster was 'men suck'!
