the death of a person you love... can never be forgotten. not with time, not with therapy, not with forgiving, and not by moving on. when you left, you took a piece of me with you, one that i will never get back. you burned a hole in my heart that will never ever be filled again, not even by another person who loves me as much as you did. i can move on, but i don't know if i want to. everything bad that happens to me never seems to hurt as bad as the day you left us, and strangely that's why i keep coming back to your memory. when something so tragic like this happens, everything else just seems so small. sure, they hurt too, but nothing can compare to the hurt that pierced through my heart on 14 February 2015. maybe i was a fool to believe that it was love.. but close to 4 years have passed and i still love you. this is what i see love as, and that was what i saw love as. love is what we define it as, and one can never be too young to understand what love is to them. i miss you every day, though i don't say it often. i like to keep you away.. hidden in my heart. it makes me feel like you and only you are special to me. if i don't speak of you to anyone else as often as i would like to, you can be my secret. my special someone. when a person tells you a secret, you feel special because nobody else knows of it. that's how i feel about you. may your spirit live in me forever. it may keep me from moving on, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
