the usual
we love yous
and you two are so happy
suddenly end
when it isn’t
a wedding anniversary
no one reminded me
I’ve never felt so

Writing it out. ♡

  1. I hear you, my sensitive friend. I’ve had more than a decade of forgotten anniversaries. Doesn’t get any easier, but they say Time heals all wounds — and I’m counting on that. For you, too!


  2. Painful but better faced and acknowledged than buried, denied and seeding an early heart attack. It was burying his emotions that caused my father to die in his 50s.
    “Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.
    And could you keep in your heart the miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;
    And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.
    And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.”
    – Kahil Gibran, The Prophet.


  3. I always figured that there would be someone (thinking family I suppose) who would get it and still call to say “I love you”. Singular. I was wrong. Being wrong typically doesn’t bug me. Oh well

    “Sad not mad” ma’am.
