Everyone eventually realizes how quickly life goes by. You don’t have much time and when you reach the mark I’ve reached, you panic a little. There are things you want to accomplish, places you want to see, knowledge you want to obtain, people you want to spend time with. Worst of all, there are regrets. I was in a relationship for 26 years - married for 23 of those years. Two and a half years later, I still lament love lost. I find it hard to seek out all of those things I want to get done because of things I didn’t do and, because of not having the most important human in the world to me by my side when I pursue those dreams.
This site doesn't aim to do much of anything other than give me a place to reflect. It'll be full of songs, poems, writings, videos, and images of "gloom, despair, and agony on me". I can’t fix you, but I can certainly tell you what I did wrong. I can only hope you’ll examine yourself and make changes that ensure that you realize how special those icy feet on the person lying beside you on a cold winter night really are. You’ll miss them when they are gone.
Come back often for posts that will magnify your sorrow if you’ve made the same mistakes I have, or make you rejoice that you’ll never truly understand the heartbreak represented in the content.
"How to make someone fall out of love with you" was to be the title of my blog but it was too long. "Hoarsely Cry" is borrowed from a song by The Smiths (yes, they are the greatest band ever) and is quite appropriate. I give you, "Well I Wonder".
