I will only love you more. There is no talent, only skill. Divorce cured me of ambition for I learned that everything can be lost excepting that which I kept in my heart. When we hate, even for a second, even a minor irritation, we kill a part of ourselves that can never be revived. Several years had passed since my world exploded, cast me from my mansion with a garbage bag of clothes and forty boxes of books to find a stable orbit, away from my eX but close to my kids.
