Longing becomes more poignant if in the distance you can’t tell whether your friend is going away or coming back.

‘Oh… ok, right. Well, I’m a little relieved,’ Daniel says.
‘Why?’, Sam replies.
‘Because I thought it would be something worse.’
‘Worse then the total agony of being in love?’, Sam asks incredously.
‘Ah… No, you’re right. Total agony.’

He sounds like he’s missing something or someone that he knows he can’t have now, and if he isn’t I certainly am.

We sit under the harsh lights, slowly sipping Denny’s coffee.
“It’s really sad how we keep trying each other on like worn-out sweaters, knowing that they are too frayed to wear.” He lights a cigarette and looks around the room.
I gulp the too-hot drink to give myself an excuse for the tears that are welling.

“I love you,” he said. “I think I’ve always loved you. It hurts not to be with you, not to have you know how I feel. I would die for you. I need you — oh, God. Oh, God, you look upset.”
“You look upset.”
“Oh, no, I’m sorry. I was thinking of something else.”
– Greg Knauss

“Are you happy?” I asked as I leaned over to kiss him goodnight.
“I hope so,” he replied, and I got out of the car smiling.
He was backing out of the driveway at 45 mph when I realized that I didn’t know what he meant.

“I don’t know how I feel right now,” I said.
“Will you ever?”
I bit my lip. “I’m here now. That’s all I can guarantee.”

“So that’s it?”
I didn’t understand what he meant. “Wait, what just happened? Are we broken up?”
“I don’t know.”
“Well, I’m not finishing this conversation until this weekend when we can finally talk in person.” I thought that he would at least agree to that.
“Then I don’t want to see you this weekend.”

He showed up an hour earlier than he was supposed to, with a panic-stricken look on his face and presents spilling from his arms.
“Listen,” he said. “Making you happy isn’t making me happy.”
“What makes you think I’m happy?”
– Lisa L.

“You know, I really do miss you.”
“I miss you too. Why are we apart?”
“I don’t know.”
“Maybe we should try to…”
“Why not?”
“Because… just no.”

Dreaming with a Broken Heart

When you're dreaming with
a broken heart
The waking up
is the hardest part
You roll out of bed
and down on your knees
And for a moment
you can hardly breathe
Do I have to fall asleep
with roses in my hand?
And would you
get them if I did?
