Day 8835 – Girl in the War

From August 30, 2006
Josh Ritter, Girl in the War

And I remember, that May, that June, after she had left, left me alone in this small strange apartment I had sublet in West Philadelphia, only a few blocks from her home, and she had just left me, and I realized I was alone, and was going to be alone, after every second of my life (that mattered anyway) had been with her.

Maybe I loved her too much.

If it had been the only love I’d ever had, dayenu.

And it wasn’t.
