More than words

Exercise in Futility

Been thinking about this… It’s easy to tell a person that you miss them, but actions will always be greater than words. You may miss someone so much but if you’re not doing something about it then it’s as good as not saying anything at all.


“It frightens me that I can’t do anything sensible about it.”
“Are you scared that you’ll wind up with a boring job where you have to see the same people every day and drink instant coffee?”
“I’m more scared that I’ll forget the feelings that I have now.”
“Kind of like how you forgot how it feels to be three years old.”
“That surely I’ll wind up thinking: I was so young, I didn’t really understand everything. It bothers me that I know I will be wrong.”
