I never understood how some writers could manage
to break my heart within the length of a few pages
but then I met you and realized that pain isn’t
determined by how many words are written but
rather how many words aren’t there because
I threw away all my ‘I love you’s’ but all I got back
was silence and that is worse than an unhappy ending
since you didn’t even think I was worth a start.
