no one else can fit

You’ll get over it…” It’s the clichés 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 uniqueness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made undone by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?

  3. Very often I find Le Love fits perfectly into something I've noticed going on around me. This continues that tradition. It's always comforting to read, like indirect advice from a thousand different people out there.

  7. A poignant coincidence. I have this book and I'm currently smarting from a fresh breakup. What wounds... btw, it's "anodyne" instead of "undone by death".

    “You’ll get over it…” It’s the clichés that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. 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 particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no-one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?”
