A Letter To My Ex-Girlfriend.

Sweeping pieces of my heart from under the bed, the table and shedding the bits that get stuck to the broom is old. But damn, it felt so much worse after us. Your complex cage set me free and returning to you felt better than seeing the world.

Staying Connected With Our Loves, Even If The Virtual Is All We Got

Back in school, a classmate of mine left for three months, and her closest friend would write little notes every single day of her absence and slip it into the desk.
