Oh, who am I kidding? Love can't save anyone. You knew that. You were wiser than me in so many ways. Love is at best an illusion. The best kind, but still an illusion. No one can take away another's pain. No one can give another's life meaning. I was naive to believe that.
And you were right about me - I did live in denial. As cynical as I am, I could never face up to how ugly things really are. I was always secretly hopeful that truth and beauty will prevail.
I am no more.
