It's okay.
I was never good enough for him, anyway
The timing wasn't right, and we're too different
...But we were so perfect - I wish he saw it.
Maybe in an alternate univers
where he wasn't so cocky
and I was thinner, prettier
and he wasn't so full of himself
and I was more confident, better -
it could've worked.
S***.
I don't even know how to stop crying.
He was such a waste of time.
It doesn't even hurt that bad, to be honest.
I mean, I just can't stop feeling like I'll never be whole again,
never feel anything except empty.
Ha. Forget him.
I can't forget him.

I wanted to portray the two sides of every girl's state of mind when things go wrong: the side telling her she deserves better anyway, and the one the says that it should've worked out

Memento Mori- It means that nothing lasts forever, no one is immortal, sooner or later you will die and things will come to an end. It also helps you realize that while you are living you should do the most with your life, live life to the fullest.

Love can be one of the greatest things or the absolute worst, something that only makes you feel worthess and regret.  I can only hope that you find love in the best way.  Good luck!

Your work is beautiful, you were very good at portraying the two sides.  I mysef have felt both sides and can say with the utmost confidence that you are an excellent writer.

I love it. The contrast of her emotions are enchanting.
