Loving hurt too much. You loved people and you came to depend on their being there. But people died or changed or went away and it hurt too much. The only way to avoid that pain was not to love anyone, and not to let anyone get too close or too important. The secret to not being hurt like this again, I decided, was never depending on anyone, never needing, never loving.
It is the last dream of children, to be forever untouched.

Maybe then we’ll be better for each other.

I am grateful for Kahlilah.
I say it all the time, but I love her to death. She is the perfect complement to me and I am never left feeling down in her presence. She is artistic, vibrant, hilarious, and consistent. From 1997 to this very moment, she has understood me inside and out.
I’m bored and I can’t get out of this bed to pack for tomorrow :(
