Here’s a little snippet Mack wrote to me once about an old boyfriend with whom he imagined I might get back together. Never mind the old boyfriend is married now and I hadn’t seen him in six years.
You could wind up with him yet.
Too bad, because you’ll never get over me. For the rest of your life, *******, you will never… ever… get over me. And you have no idea how truly sad that is. I had to live with that sadness for 20 years.
Until I met you.
But eventually, I’ll leave you. i promise you that.
