Disney Princess Oil Paintings - by Heather Theurer
I feel I am grieving over everything that I have not lost.
I will grow older and lose my youth one day, my hair in grey patches, my smooth, unwrinkled skin, my eyes, awake and lively - I will lose it all to the simple fact that I continue to be alive.
I will find friends and lose them in the middle of winter, in the beginning of summer, i will lose them to new jobs, new lovers, far away states, to coffins, and fires, to the simple fact that they continue to be alive and I continue to be alive and you cannot throw a lasso around a person and make them stay.
I am grieving you, for you are always leaving - your absence continues to plague the way I breathe because I cannot breathe next to you.
I lose myself in maps, tracing the highways to where you are, folding its pages over and over and over again until your home and my home are next door neighbors and I can walk to your house just to hear your voice.
I am grieving over the death of love. I am grieving over your death and my death. I am grieving over the lack of everything we’ve wished for. I am grieving over the memories we cannot share. I hope I do not have to grieve forever.”
this is worth every second of the seven minutes it’ll take to watch this. pinky promise.
Who loves my Grad/Prom stuff as much as I do?
