He hasn’t shown you any light --
you’ve shown it to yourself. You know,
you’re only setting yourself up for catastrophe.
You do realize that it is not him, was never
him, and never will be. That person
will die, you see. They’ll die.
And when the end comes, it will
change everything, leaving you
with an awkward longing. You cannot
place that burden on another human.
That boy is a sham -- he was never your motivation.
That boy is everywhere.

"Others will testify that there is, in addition... a cosmic loneliness which human love doesn't reach, which yearns for a sense of oneness with the universe." - Rev. Robert N. Taylor Jr. (from “This Damned Campus”)
