Getting over someone is the worst kind of withdrawal . Especially when they leave you with nothing to work with. I forgot writing is the best way I have found to cope with this kind of emotional mess. Writing has a way of going places naked thought cannot go alone, it weaves in between memories, pinpoints origins, retraces steps. Along the way it helps you find pieces of a broken heart, which are those memories, or what's in them, and knit it back together. Unfortunately words cannot kill the past, it can only remake it. The powerlessness one feels in the wake of an irreversible mistake is unlike any other. At least by writing about it one can assert some schema on it, make sense of it, rather than have it stampede right through you uncontrollably.

Ultimately the only solution for unfixable romantic loss is to view it like one does death. There is so much left unsaid, so many questions unasked, which will never be said and never be asked, just as one is never able to say goodbye to someone who dies unexpectedly. It's both are strains of grief, both reflect the futile powerlessness of inexorable loss. Death, however, is the greater reality, and it has much to teach about heartbreak. The death of a loved one is not so much different than the unraveling, the unbecoming of a loved one into the unloved or unlovable.

Thanks for reading my emo blog post. </3
