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.

(Jared Leto and Diane Kruger in “Mr. Nobody” by Jaco Van Dormael, 2009)
