Renouncing all possible lives

– There is no life without you…

– Shshsh… Go slowly… I have to get used to it… I talked to you so much when you weren’t there it’s so strange for me… to talk to you for real!

   I need some time, Nemo.

  When we were separated at 15, I said I would never love anyone else. Ever. I would never become attached. I’d never see you put anywhere. I’d have nothing for myself. I decided I would pretend  to be alive. And this is what I’ve been waiting for. All this time…

Renouncing all possible lives, for one only … With you.

But I’m not used to it anymore. You know … Love … I mean. I’m afraid of losing you again, I’m afraid of having to do without you again… I… I’m terrified of that.

lovers are like buses…

– No one has ever picked me up and not wanted something.

– I think you picked me up… This is kind of a serious day for me.

– Come on. What could be so serious for a guy like you?

– I’m just trying to get over an old love I guess.

– My mother says that lovers are like buses. You just have to wait a little while and another one comes along.
