Doors

I have, today, realised that there exist two kinds of feelings that are capable of heartbreak. One of them is when a door that you've never noticed before- despite the fact that it was always there- shuts forever. The other is when you tug at a door, for as hard and as long as possible, knowing all the while it will never open. Despite the fact that you want it to with all your heart.

I don't know which is worse. The one that could have been or the one that will never be.

The one that could have been. It's the stuff all human tragedy is made of.

theres also the kind that you know will never be, but you never tried for either, just because you thought it would never happen. thats the kind that hurts the most, and what always kills you is what could have been.

That's the first door.

Definitely the one that could have been. It is far, far, worse. Believe you me.
