She wasn’t bitter. She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time

please, please, make this pain go away.

sometimes i think i have felt everything i’m ever gonna feel. and from here on out i’m not gonna feel anything new. just lesser versions of what i’ve already felt.
from “Her”, a film by Spike Jonze
Suddenly for no earthly reason I felt immensely sorry for him and longed to say something real, something with wings and a heart, but the birds I wanted settled on my shoulders and head only later when I was alone and not in need of words.

bittersweet

i may not understand now why it had to happen this way but i just want to say, thank you.

i waited 15 years for this feeling to finally be requited. it was indeed a long time filled with hopes, frustrations, tears and surrender. i was finally moving on to acceptance when all this had to happen. i never thought that the day you’d say you like me too could be so sad.

i have to admit my world was shaken and i was confused. i couldn’t handle the truth that there is nothing for me beyond that one night.

bittersweet. some kind of joke the universe threw at me. i should be able to laugh at all this now. and i will, one day. for now, i have acceptance and peace. maybe i just needed this jolt to make me feel alive, to learn to be honest with myself and to take chances more often.

to me, our story is poignant but nonetheless beautiful. :-)
