this--too--shall--pass

this—too—shall—pass:

a small part of me wishes i had never even met you so i wouldn’t have to feel this excruciating heartbreak.
but the majority of me is thankful. you taught me how to love. and god, it was magnificent. i just don’t know how to keep going without you. once you’ve experienced the love of your life, how do you ever go back and settle for less?
