Steve was heartbroken the day Husky died but was always afraid to admit it because he believed heartbreaks had become cliché. There were too many poets writing about it, too many eyes crying over it, too many stories ending because of it. He believed heartbreaks had become ‘too much’ and he was born a minimalist.

Not all dates are the same.

It’s very tough to remember how a conversation played out when it has been a few years and you’ve not even thought about it once. Luckily for me, I had a map that helped me remember every important detail. This map was made out of lyrics and tunes that we sang together.

and smiled when his daughter
didn’t complain about rocks the next day

Happiness. Pain. Memories.
So hi, artist.
You’ve got so much to learn.

Not every forever is a cliché.
You promised me a forever on our first date
and I said you were cliché
You warned me you would be different. Continue reading Not every forever is a cliché.
