Tell me if you ever cared
             if a single thought
             for me was spared.

Tell me when you lied in bed,
             do you think of something
             I once said.

Tell me if you hurt at all,
             when someone says
             my name with yours.

It may have been long ago,
              but I would give
              the world to know.

I guess the hardest part in letting him go was realizing that I was the rough draft, and she was the final copy. He marked me up, leaving scratches and foot notes along my skin, so that when the time came, she could be clear of his mistakes. But he should never forget that he still has traces of my ink on side of his hand. The hand I used to hold.
—  Belle Jar
When love finds you, it doesn’t come with crashing waves or thunderbolts.  It appears as a song on the radio or a particular blue in the sky.  It dawns on you slowly, like a warm winter sunrise—where the promise of summer shines out from within.
