"You'll get over it." It's the cliches that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life forever. You don't get over it because "it" is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The articluarness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not stopped by anyone but death. The hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?
