Yee Von Chan - Autumn Spirit from Whispers in Thy Ears series, 2010
Sometimes we leave our lovers. Not because we want to. Just because we need to.
Sometimes we’ll spend years remembering every moment we spent together. Each touch, laugh, tear, promise. With faith in our hearts and hope in our heads, we’ll remember what once was. Every last thing we meant to each other. We berate ourselves for leaving. We wonder what each other is doing, how you’re going, if you like the new family. We wonder how it could have been with us. It pains to think you may have forgotten… you’ve wanted to forgotten.
A part of us never leaves. It never will.
Do you take that risk?
Sometimes our true loves aren’t people at all. Sometimes they’re homes. And that’s just how it is, for me anyway.
