what was it like?

what was it like to love him? Asked Gratitude.
It was being exhumed, I answered, and brought to life in a flash of brilliance.

what was it like to be loved in return? Asked Joy.
It was like being seen after a perpetual darkness, I replied. To be heard after a lifetime of silence.

What was it like to lose him? Asked sorrow. There was a long pause before I responded:

It was like hearing every goodbye ever said to me - said all at once.

Lang Leav, Love & Misadventure.
