“Maybe that's what he reminds her of: they are both full of dark corners, odd places, possibly ghosts.” ~ Bellweather Rhapsody by Kate Racculia.⠀
“I gently pull my wrist from her grip. 'Because,' I say, my voice so soft it's nearly swallowed up by the trees, 'I'm standing here, telling you how much you hurt me, and you can't hear it.' Tears fill my eyes. I've lost the strength to hide them. 'You broke my heart, and you didn't even notice. How can I ...' My throat closes up, I look away. 'How could I ever trust you to put the pieces back together?'"
