He sends me music like he did years ago like that will mean anything. It is falling on deaf ears. I will never hear you again.
I often wonder what part of humanity makes us like this. If it is biological or social. If she wants me to keep loving her because of ego or loneliness or mating possibilities, or all of the above.

I don’t know if all of this is boring and wasteful and pointless. Isn’t everything? It might be good. It might get better.
Maybe it is mortality. The end. The no going back. The finishing of some young story-line. The realization she doesn’t want you anymore, or ever again. The death of some thing, some chance, some hope.
