you fall in love, it’s intoxicating, and for a little whileyou feel like you’ve actually become one with the otherperson. merged souls, and so on. you think you’ll never be lonleyagain. only it doesn’t last and soon you realize you can only get so close, and you end up brutally disappointed, more alone than ever, because the illusion— the hope you’d held on to all those years—has been shattered.
