Como ves, soy jodido para querer. La mayor parte del tiempo, me basta con hacerlo. Sé que no es suficiente. Somos muchos los que andamos con el cariño estropeado, pero hay que tener valor para sacarlo de adentro con estropeaduras y todo. Me parece ahora que es algo que hay que aprender, como tantas cosas en la vida. Nos moriremos aprendiendo, si queremos vivir distraídos del morir.
