There are so many things I didn’t realize would happen when I first discovered how much I loved the sound of your voice. All of the obvious things like loving you and losing, the way you’d hold me and the fact that you didn’t even have to leave to be gone.

There are new stories here, though, in the things I didn’t know. There is the network of spiders across my heart, the one that simply being us built, the network that hid tiny eggs in tiny places so I never know where to look for pain.
