Goodbyes are not always necessary

I am sure he was relieved, that I didn’t stay for 10 more min in silence crying, because there was nothing else left to say. I could have said “Have a good life”, “I am sorry”, “everything will be ok”, “I will miss you”, “I will always love you..”. None of these phrases make sense in my situation. What I really wanted to say wasn’t what he wanted, so I just shut the door behind me.

Last Night

Last night I sat by the big fire and I felt that I was a part of it, surrounded by the burning logs. And in the center of it, there was my burning heart… I sat still and quiet, taking it all in, but then there was a moment when I wanted to howl… Boiling tears were running down my cheeks.
