That Dark Little Corner

I made a post using my phone, and it disappeared.

It was all about this little corner. The tiny little dark corner of your heart, right there. The one reserved for one memory, or one person...or one thing.

That unfulfilled need. Or desire. Or passion.

That dream you let go of, because you thought was impossible... and every time something reminds you of it, you get a heavy heart? Yes, that's the one. It's because the air in the dark little corner is pretty dense. Dense with discontent.
That potential relationship you never got yourself into, due to lack of certainty (that sounded very institutional economics-like!) belongs there as well.
And the life you never lived. Maybe.

I think my dark little corner is almost fully packed.

PS. I miss you.

I miss you, too.

I owe you some words; my life has been unbelievably surreal lately, and that is my (poor) explanation for the lack of them.

It isn't too late, you know, to let in some light.

We'll talk soon. I promise.

Huge big all-encompassing hugs to you, sweetheart.

Well said. I'm careful not to put more things in my little corner but it's difficult when it has to do with other people...

The person you never was, and the one you never had, the life you never lived & probably never will.. .. ..

This all hurts a great deal.

I'm only afraid all what i've been in denial about would come out of the little dark room & eat me up someday.

Hello there, I was looking for a blog to read, and
this may not mean much, but I absolutely love your blog, I adore your writing, and your point of view never gets dull.

So thank you, I hope that your dark little corner doesn't always stay packed.

I relate... very much..
my little dark corner is weighing me down.. and I'm not a big fan of gravity!

You don't have to miss me, I'm right here, in Sweden. Do I need to come and pull you out of your dark little corner?

My dark corner used to be in my mind constantly, and I'd feel guilty whenever I thought of it. I decided it wasn't worth it, and gave it to God and now I know I'm renewed. It doesn't have to bother me anymore (and it doesn't, though it still makes me sad).
Now it's only filled with smaller disappointments. That I know won't matter in a year.

thank you for posting this. it makes people think and talk.
